Default Ekco A22 stand, proper version

Hi all,

After humming and harring for a while over the MK1 stand I have finaly decided on the proportions. I decided to make the feet of the radio more visible, you can see that on the close up shot, the legs are also somewhat thinner. Made of Sapele wood, great to work with and takes a finish very well.

Also attached are some plans.

It's all fake (the skills not the stand) and took about 20 hours, if I had carpentry skills it would have taken less than 5!
