I need a headphone stand. Well, what I really need is a stand that can live wherever my laptop is. Mainly on my desk. I use my headphones a lot when I’m editing video, or listening to music while the kids are asleep.
My father in law has also started putting some original music together for my videos. So I figured I could make him one of these headphone stands while I was making mine.
That said here’s a video—riddled with bad jokes—showing how I made this thing. Let me know what you think about the design.
Materials I Used
These are the materials I used to make the headphone hanger.
- The wood is all black walnut. The stem and top are 4 quarter S4S. And the base was 5/4 rough sawn with a live edge.
- The glue I used was Tite Bond II. The glue I use for almost all of my projects.
- I used power tools, but with a little time and some elbow grease you can make these headphone stands with minimal tools.
OK. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s move onto the fun stuff!
The Template I Made
Here’s a link to the headphone stand template that I made and used. There is a legal sized, and two letter sized sheets that you can tape together. Just print them out and transfer it to your plywood template.
And if you don’t have a router table, I’m sure you can cut it out and file/sand to your finished profile. It’ll take a little longer, but it’s doable.

Alright. That’s how I made this headphone hanger / stand thing. I hope you found it helpful, and if you did don’t hesitate to let me know.
