Hi Paulo2, thanks for responding. I'm trying to figure out how the stands are constructed on the inside, how the joints are constructed, if there are any internal braces for support, and if the compartment designed to fill with sand/lead is open or closed. If I am going to make these or have them made, I want to make sure that the joints will support the weight of the speakers.
I can see on my Es that there is a lip that runs all the way around the speaker, approx. 2 inches from the bottom. When in the base, does the weight of the speaker rest on this lip, sitting on the outer edge of the stand, or is there a "top" on the inside of the stand, on which the bottom of the speaker rests? I also have in my head that the compartment for sand would fill from the top of the stand when it's right-side-up, but I suppose it could be that the bottom of the stand would have a panel that removes to add the filler.
SJ sent pictures of front and back views of these stands, which I greatly appreciate. If you can describe the inner and joint construction and/or send pictures of the inside and bottom, it would give me a better idea of how Snell put them together. As I told SJ in my email correspondence with him, my twin sons were born last Tuesday, so I may be slow to respond. Thanks for any help you can give.
