Build a Headphone Stand

Build a Headphone Stand

My son is a musician. He’s pretty good, too, and I’m not just saying that because I’m his mom… Take a listen here.

He asked me if there was any way I could make a stand for his headphones (this may be the only time we ever “collaborate” on a project together!) so we sat down and created a design that would work.

Build a Headphone Stand


  • 2 – 1×3,  at 9″ long
  • 2 screws
  • Wood glue
  • Drill
  • Jigsaw

Let’s get started!

Cut a notch in one of the 1×3 pieces as shown…

Draw a line across the width at the center of the other board and drill two countersunk holes. Attach the base to the board with the notch as shown using glue and 1-1/2″ screws.

My son bought himself a pair of “Skullcandy” headphones and painted the stand to match…

The headphones came with a skull stencil so we put it on the base…
