QS speaker stands. Design ideas? #439383 10/30/2020 5:03 PM

I'm going to build some stands for a set of QS8's I have. I plan to use 4 quarter Walnut hardwood to match the Q's. I have a general idea in my head, but thought I'd see if anyone here might have some ideas of what might look cool. Pictures would be helpful. The Q's pose a bit of a challenge, due to the downward firing driver, so that little detail takes a simple table top type of stand out of the equation. They can't be tippy, so I am thinking I'll criss/cross a couple boards to make four bearing points. I can shape the boards to make them look better. I tend to migrate towards mission style furniture when I build things. I'm not into weird, progressive/contemporary crap.

Here's what I came up with. Finished them yesterday.

Height is adjustable by loosening the thumb screw, sliding the speaker up/down, then tighten the thumb screw again.
