Here is my standpoint as someone who took up wood working this year. At $130 I would consider paying that for a solid zebrawood headphone stand (I know zebrawood is not an option in this drop). Zebrawood is approximately $26 a board ft. A board foot being defined as a 12 x 12 x 1 inch piece of wood. I'm going to be generous and say it takes the full board foot to make after you find a piece suitable and cut around all the knots, crack, imperfections, and hardwood supplier rounds up every possible measurement in their favor. Next you have to cut the wood to dimensions and miter the ends. This isn't terribly hard if you have access to a jointer, planer, and table saw. Maybe half an hour of work for a non professional. Maybe another 20 minutes to sand to perfection. Then comes the hard part, you have to steam and bend that piece of wood. You have to build or have access to a steam box, you have to make a template jig to clamp the piece of wood into shape and hold it there. You have to do it very quickly while the wood is still bendable and the hard part is if you break or fail to bend it to shape you've pretty much wasted your time and $26. This is actually an extreme bend and I don't think I could even do it after many tries. Hence why I would rather buy this piece then waste my own time. I would imagine a pro doing it repeatedly would get a pretty decent success rate over 50%. Finally you have to put a finish on it and subject your lungs to whatever VOCs are in the finish.
Amateur woodworking is the kind of thing you do for fun and not to save money so this is not exactly a fair comparison however I did want to give some justification of why I would buy the one described here instead of a $30 one off of amazon. However I don't believe the description. The pictures don't look like solid wood. If you look at the feet of the stand the edge grain of the wood coming up and around the stand doesn't flow into the end grain of the wood. It looks like a composite piece, like a high quality plywood with a real wood veneer. That is definitely not worth $130 and to me does look just like the $30 one off of amazon.
Can anyone who has actually bought one in the past please share if it really is solid wood. Perhaps some better pictures could prove it really is what they are saying it is.
