ABOUT CUSTOM MADE

Custom made is a limited production item. Cost is generally higher because of the lack of mass production and optimized distribution. With custom made the cost of skill and labor is concentrated into a single item, instead of distributed among many items like in mass production. Ordering custom made is like commissioning an artisan or craftsman to create something for you. This is different than buying a mass produced product from a store. It can take several or more hours of skilled labor over several days to make a custom item to your specifications. Shipping carriers do not discount much for low volume shipping. Cost reflects the realities of the local economy, it is not compensated or subsidized by foreign governments or through market manipulation like is occurring with many imported products.

What makes custom made better? Price is not the only measure of value, otherwise everyone would buy the cheapest product available. With custom made you have the value of the custom size, custom features, quality workmanship, healthier materials, and more. Having the right size item for your needs without compromise is peace of mind. In a work environment, custom made can help increase your productivity. With custom made, you can get something that is unique and cannot be bought as a mass produced item.

HELP GUIDE

How to determine the stand height

At the speaker location, raise or lower your speaker with books, magazines, or similar, until you achieve an optimal speaker height. You then measure the height to the bottom of the speaker.

How to determine the top and bottom plate sizes

Measure the front and side of the bottom of your speaker without any front grill or panel attached.

For the top plate, subtract 1 inch from the measured speaker bottom. For the bottom plate, add 1 inch to the measured speaker bottom. For example, if the speaker bottom measures 9 x 10 inches, the top plate will be 8 x 9 inches, and the bottom plate will be 10 x 11 inches. For larger speakers one may want to subtract 2 inches for the top plate, and add 2 inches for the bottom plate. For tall stands, it is a good idea to make the bottom plate substantially larger than the speaker bottom to avoid the "lollipop" look and to increase stability.

To help with the design process, one can make paper cutouts of the plates and column to get a visual idea of what things will look like. Making estimated paper cutouts of the top and bottom plates and comparing with the speaker is a quick way to determine the plate sizes.

This is only a guide. You can determine your own dimensions within the dimension limits.

More suggestions

For desktop stands, to conserve desktop space, one might consider making the bottom plate the same size as the top plate.

For a pedestal look, one might consider making the top plate larger than the speaker bottom.

If ordering a tilted top plate, to determine the tilt angle, draw tilt angle on a piece of paper and cut it out as a wedge, and then compare it with the speaker to help visualize how things will look. The listing example pictures of the tilted top plate show a 5-6 degree tilt.

If a back support is ordered with a tilted top plate, keep in mind that the speaker will not sit centered on the plate, but be pushed forward a bit because of the back support. Making paper cutouts of the top plate and back support will help visualize how things will look.

If a 4-sided column is ordered, if one intends to fill the column with sand or other weight, it is recommended to put the weight inside plastic bags or similar to keep things tidy.

 

HOW TO ESTIMATE COST

If the basic stand fits your needs, the cost is the price of this listing. If you need customizations that go beyond the basic stand, to estimate cost, you simply add the price of the basic stand and the price of the desired customizations.

Example pricing, if you would like the basic stand to be customized to be 24 inches high with 12x12 inch top and bottom plates, with the enhanced finish, then the estimated cost will be the basic stand, plus the Up to 24 inch Height, plus the Up to 12 inches Plate Front, plus the Up to 12 inches Plate Side, plus the Enhanced Finish Quality customizations.

Column

The following column types can be custom ordered. Pricing is provided for estimating cost.

Column Price
Standard Included
Custom Add $14
Monolith Add $16 + 45% Stand Height & Smallest Plate Size Price
Plateless Subtract $10 + 50% Column Size Price

Columns have (3) sides by default, where the column back is open. A 4-sided column can be custom ordered. This customization makes an enclosed column with (4) sides. Price is $12 + 30% stand height & smallest plate size. The 4-sided column is typically ordered when one intends to fill the column with sand or other weight, or when the column back will be visible.

Stands with a very small plate size, such as 2-4 inches,  may have a solid column instead of an open column.

Below is description of the different column types. The monolith and plateless column types can handle heavier loads.

Standard Column

This is the default column. The standard column size is approximately 2/3 the smallest plate size, both in the front and side dimensions. For example, if the smallest plate size is 9 x 12 inches, the standard column size will be around 6 x 8 inches.

By default the standard column has (3) sides. If one desires an enclosed column, then order the 4-sided column customization.

 

Custom Column

This customization allows one to specify a column size other than the standard column size. The minimum column size that can be ordered is 1/4 the smallest plate size. The maximum column size that can be ordered is 1 inch smaller than the smallest plate size. For example, if the smallest plate size is 8 x 12 inches, the minimum column size is 2 x 3 inches, and the maximum column size is 7 x 11 inches.

If one wants a column size that goes to the edges of the top plate, then order the monolith column customization below.

By default the custom column has (3) sides. If one desires an enclosed column, then order the 4-sided column customization.

 

Monolith Column

This column customization provides a monolithic, large column look. The column is made the same size as the top plate. The top plate is made part of the column instead of detachable.

Below are other customizations that can be ordered.

Customization Price

Standard Bottom Plate

Included
Attached Bottom Plate Add $14
Recessed Bottom Plate Add $24
Without Bottom Plate Subtract $5 + 30% Top Plate Size

Recessed Top Plate

Add $22

The standard bottom plate is made detachable. The smallest plate size that can be ordered is 1 inch larger than the top plate size. This is to allow room for the plate mounting holes.

The attached bottom plate makes the the bottom plate the same size as the column. The plate is made part of the column instead of detachable.

The recessed bottom plate positions the bottom plate recessed in the column instead of on the bottom, to make the column sides appear like a solid block of wood. The plate is made detachable.

The without bottom plate, no bottom plate is made. The base of the stand will be the bottom edge of the column. For this customization there is a discount.

The recessed top plate positions the top plate recessed in the column instead of on the top, to make the column sides appear like a solid block of wood. By default, the plate is made part of the column instead of detachable.

By default the monolith column has (3) sides. If one desires an enclosed column, then order the 4-sided column customization.

It is possible to order a monolith column that is completely enclosed. This is like an enclosed box with 6 faces. For this possibility, the recessed bottom plate must be ordered.

Below are examples of a monolith column with bottom plate.

Below are examples of a monolith column without the bottom plate customization.


 

Plateless Column

This column customization makes a stand that is only a column, without top and bottom plates.

By default the plateless column has (3) sides. If one desires an enclosed column, then order the 4-sided column customization.

This customization has a discount of $10 + 45% of the column size price. The column size is the stand height and equivalent plate size. Essentially the discount reflects not having top and bottom plates. Example pricing, if the column is 12 x 12 x 12 inches, then the price will be "Up to 12 inches" height and "Up to 12 inches" front and side plate size, then subtract $10 and subtract 45% of the "Up to 12 inches" height and "Up to 12 Inches" front and side plate size.

Below are examples of a plateless column, with and without the enclosed column option.


 

 

Edge Treatment

The following edge treatments can be custom ordered:

Edge Treatment Price
Standard Included
Refined Add $18

Standard (Smooth Finish)


Refined (Smooth Finish)

The standard edge treatment lightly rounds edges to remove edge sharpness and provide a hard edge look.

The refined edge treatment substantially rounds edges to provide a more refined look and feel. The amount of roundover for the refined edge treatment varies depending on material thickness for good looks.

The hybrid edge treatment uses a mix of standard and refined edge treatments. The column has the refined edge treatment. For the top and bottom plates, the top edges have the refined edge treatment, and the bottom edges have the standard edge treatment.

 

Tilted Top Plate

A tilted top plate can be custom ordered. Price is $16.

One can specify a backward tilt (speaker front facing upwards) or a forward tilt (speaker front facing downwards). By default the tilt angle is around 5 degrees. Tilt angle can be specified if you desire a different angle. Tilt angle is approximate.

For a backward tilt, stand height is measured to the top of the top plate front edge. For a forward tilt, stand height is measured to the top of the top plate front edge (disregarding any front support)

A tilted top plate is only available with the standard and custom columns. A tilted top plate is not available with the monolith column.


Tilted Top Plate

A back support or front support can be custom ordered. Price is $10. The back support is attached to the back edge of the top plate. The front support is attached to the front edge of the top plate.

The height of the support above the top plate is approximately the material thickness, ranging from less than 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch or more depending on the stand size. If the height of the support is important, it can be specified.


Tilted Top Plate With Back Support

SHIPPING

This is a custom made, made to order item, and created upon demand. There can be up to a 30 day delay before item is shipped. Orders are done in batches, not individually. Current turnaround time is 20-30 days.

Shipping price includes transport costs, shipping box, packing materials, packing labor, and drop off with carrier. Because this is a custom made item with many possible configurations, often custom packing has to be done and custom shipping boxes made. This additional service is included in the shipping price.

In the listing, some of the item price is included in the shipping price so that prices can be simple and easy to calculate. Shipping costs are not hidden in the item price. For small volume shipping, transport costs are typically 2-5 times more than what large corporations such as Amazon and Walmart pay. Because this is a custom made item with many possible configurations, to keep things simple, the estimated shipping price is an average flatrate based upon previous shipping costs.

When shipping locations are long distance or remote, an additional shipping charge may be added to help cover transport costs.

Shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and APOs is available, but size and weight restrictions apply. Please inquire for more information.

BUYER REVIEWS

 

  • "Nice stands
    Well made, custom sized, speaker stands. Really look nice. Recommended.
     
  • "Great stand worth the wait
    Great pair of custom stands. The smooth satin finish matches all of my equipment. Even with piano black speakers on them you almost can't tell the difference. You have to be willing to waiting them, but given the results I'd definitely say its worth it. Plus being able to totally customize it makes worth it"
