    Most DJ Stands on the market just ain't up to it.Face it :) and in fact for the money you could build something far stronger

    So out the ashes (figurativly speaking) of my pirate station studio I managed to salvage some good timber.

    I have gone for a 170 cm x 80 cm desk so I have room for loads of kit and even records at the back or beer etc.

    Also decided I want to be able to dismantle this into a flat pack if needed, so made thinsg a bit more technical by having bolt on legs.

    SO I built 2 frames ( base & Top) using four be tooz...4 inch by 2 inch timber. Be careful when buying ( especially in B& Q) that the timber is not warped, ( as was mine but only slightly)- slight warps can be corrected.

    I'll post up a pic of the frames.

    I was lucky enough to borrow a chopsaw so got some accurate cuts....

    I borrowed an electric crewdriver

    bought 1000 2 inch wood crews..militant ones...
    and got a wood borer drill bit


    and some threaded metal and got my trusty grinder out

    I may post pictures of the one I built. Big shelf on it for my studio gear, decks on top. Used and electric drill and a handsaw so it's a bit rough round the edges its hard to cut down an 8ft MDF board in perfectly straight lines without power tools!
