The only wooden (kinda) stands I can think of are at:

Ramset (Australia at least) make threaded studs in various sizes, they make good spikes. There should be a US/UK company that make similar items ?

Hope this helps

Thumbs up Mission Completed

Ahh, finally finished with these little (actually big) buggers. I picked up some spikes at a local high end audio store, despite being seriously overpriced. The trickiest part was trying to keep the top and the base from going on crooked, but a little nudge here or there straightened it out. As I'd expected, the MDF was soaking up the paint, especially on the edges. It took about 15 coats of black lacquer paint, but they have a nice sheen to them now. Theres still a few smudge marks, but I'm not going to apply a last coat until next weekend, because I will be removing the top to add a bit of sand once it settles. All in all they are VERY stable, the surrounds are at a perfect height, and I can feel a thing vibrate when I knock on the top.

I'd just like to thank all of you guys for the advice. They turned out great. This just goes to show that you dont have to have a lot of know-how to make something cheaper and better than you can buy commercially. I would suggest this project to anyone looking for a set of good, solid, attractive stands, and to those on a tight budget.

Bryan: Glad to hear that they worked out well for you! Having your speakers at the correct height makes a big improvement. Not having to worry about them tipping is better for peace of mind! When you get around to it, see if you can post a picture of them, I'd like to see the end result!
