    Not sure where this should go.

    I have been looking at changing my amp and have got some new diamond 10.1 speakers, but i noticed how bad my wall was and was using cheap pine shelves for the speakers.

    So i made some Cherry Solid shelves, then noticed the wall was bad, so its got quite involved now.

    So gone to finding some unused Cherry stock, into a decoration project etc.

    I do have some build pics, but there on workmates phone, i dont use a phone, and i tend to make stuff without pics, so i will post them soon.

    However i have the last pic of completed shelves, ready to go up once wall is plastered.

    Plus it was about time i had a new project to be getting on with.

    Hey, they look great, such a warming colour!

    Are you going to fix them to the wall permanently? And then the speakers go ontop of them? Do you have to do anything special to make a good contact between the speaker and the shelf? (Like tying it down or something)? Sorry I just haven't really seen anything like it thats all :)

    Yep, will be fixed to the wall permanent, and speakers just sat ontop,

    The rear 2 and rear center have chrome brackets, i expect the front ones will be fixed using some Cherry wood supports that i have made also.

    Im guessing no ones that bothered.

    Maybe a start picture will help, in the fact there was more to them than just a few shelves

    That a work workshop or your own?

    Look nice, great finish. I'm sadly looking forward to buying a house myself sometime in the next few years so I plenty of little projects like this as I enjoy a good bit of woodwork (can't plaster tho :( )

    You got any type of isolation between the speaker and shelf?

    Hi, Its Work workshop unfortunately.

    Buying a house can be alot of work maintaining i agree .

    Ive only got a few bump on feet for isolation (open to suggestions)

    Thanks Carrie, I use only a home phone, i love my gadgets, but hate anything with a constant cost and something i dont have a use for.
