Loch Ness Speaker Stand

Speaker stands for rear-channel speakers, in cherry-stained maple appleply. I wanted a design that was more interesting that your typical speaker-on-a-stick solution. The idea hit to use the wall-mounting hole on the speakers, and have the organic form grow from that. The design ended up looking like a cartoon sea-going dinosaur. Hence the name.

The gloss finish was selected to evoke the look of musical instruments, and black matte screws were used to contrast the shine. Square-drive screws help to give it a unique look, although I do wish they created more interesting looking screw heads. 

There are a series of rods across the pieces that form the neck. Speaker wires wrap around them so they follow the curve of the stand, partially hiding them from view. A lot of my furniture are designed to hide wiring. It's a thing.
