    That is a really nice stand.
    From a design aspect I think it could be improved if the wooden cross pieces were on the underside of the brackets unless you need the additional height of course.

    I really like this stand.
    I’m going to attempt to make one as a computer monitor stand and I may make a second one for some other equipment (drum machine and Mixer)

    Sweetness! I did something similar, but used a plank of wood from Home Depot instead.

    I’m curious, which dell monitor is that and what are you using to mount it on the wall?

    I love that desktop background you’ve got! What is it?

    $9 for each slinga bracket?!
    They are £8 in the UK, that’s sooo not fair! I was going to use slinga for my shelves until I realised that three shelves would set me back £48 plus the actual shelves – that’s about $100. Crazy.

    thank you i’m going to use this idea as i need a monitor stand because i lowered the height of my table (Vika Kaj legs) so i need to raise my monitor.
    better i already have 2 Slinga consoles at home i’ve bought but did not use eventually.
