RAST Nightstand Speaker Stands





Materials: 2 RAST Nightstands, 16 spikes, Drill, Stain of your choice

Description:
I refurbished a pair of Bang & Olufsen Beovox M70 loudspeakers from the 1970′s and needed a pair of speaker stands. I went to my local IKEA for the express purpose of finding something to convert into speaker stands and found the RAST Nightstand, an unfinished pine mini-shelf about a foot tall. Perfect.

After assembling the RASTs per the instructions, I placed 4 spikes on the bottoms and 4 spikes on the tops. I then used some red mahogany stain to get a close match to the finish of the M70 speakers.

You can see in the final photo what the hacked RAST nightstands look like with the M70s. Next up will be a hack to replace the table the receiver and turntable are on.

    I would have painted the speaker stands a different colour to match the desc and I would have placed the medium shelves almost at the bottom, so that they can feet my vinyls. What you’ll get from the second idea is, a much more steady structure plus better shock absorbance from the speakers vibrations.

    *I forgot to mention that it looks really nice by the way.

    No need to match the desk. OP says he’s going to replace the desk next. He can stain the replacement to match the speaker stands.
