I’m, looking at building myself a Headphone stand,

I’ve order a nice big pieces of American Black Walnut for the base And I was thinking of buying a sheet of 3mm brass to make the stand, the real question is, what should I put in the base??

I could always put a QI coil in the base so that I can charge my phone, or
Perhaps a nice LED light ring and some capacitive touch buttons that I could use to control something on my pc (Teams reactions / Volume / ect,) with some nice laser etched images for the buttons.

Either way I hope to include at least @woodtechs @metaltechs @CNCtechs and @lasertechs

Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated

Walnut doesn’t need LEDs to look good in my opinion

And an extra place to charge your phone is always useful in 2022 brass and walnut is a really good look and I really like the interesting geometric pattern cut into the Walnut

+1 for a charging dock. Have you thought about a smaller brass shelf integrated into the larger holder for a smartwatch charger?

It would be cool if you integrated the brass into the walnut base, so it’s as if the brass is growing out the walnut. Regardless, like Joe says, anything you do with walnut and brass will look good.

With an rfid tag in the base you could automate something (via your phone) that you do often when putting your headphones on / off the stand.
Eg when you pick up your headphones then tap your phone on the base to get your phone to turn on bluetooth and connect to the headphones.

Might not appropriate. But it’s possible!

Otherwise put something weighty in the base. Not sure how heavy your headphones are but you don’t want it to end up top heavy. A heavy base will make it sturdy to use

Yeah, I think I agree, no real need for LEDs

I don’t really have the biggest need for a charger but I am leaning that way.

When you say integrated into the base, what exactly were you thinking, in the model above there is some of the base removed al the brass is bent into a ] shape, but are you thinking of it coming out of more pieces?
