A good pair of headphones can help you focus while you're working, but they take up valuable desk space, and can fall and get run over by your chair. This DIY headphone stand makes sure they're out of the way, but still safe and easy to reach.
Ramadanrenan shared this walkthrough on Instructables. The stand is actually made from bent sheet metal, so this might require a trip to the hardware store, but it looks really good when it's finished. Basically, you have to bend the metal into a staircase shape to hang from the side of the desk, then use a hacksaw to cut a strip out of the middle to act as a wedge to keep it in place. The finished product is simple, elegant, and will work on most desks. For detailed instructions, be sure to go check out the Instructable.
