    Since Ive had about a million questions on this, ill make a thread.

    I'm working on a modular stand design that will allow you to buy a base with a cap piece, and then buy up to 3 more sections to add to it. They will snap together so you can make your stand anywhere from 1 to 4 tiers easily and with one stand.

    I need some input though. I will post up some pics tonight, but I have some questions:

    1) should I just make the base circular like Oakley did, or should it be 3(4,5?) legs? What do you guys wanna see?

    2) pending pics

    3) how much interest is there in something like this?

    IMO the circular base occupies a lot of space specially if you have a single wide cabinet.

    Something like that works best because it keeps the base out from in front. I may do some kind of triangular base. I'll see if I can do some sketches later

    I like the O round base however it does take up some valuable real estate in a single wide tower so anything you can do to streamline the base would be perfect. I definitely have an interest in some. One question though, if you have the capability of going 4 tiers high will you be able to keep the stands short enough to still fit in most towers?

    Could you not make it an oval base (as in a shape similar to the icon?)

    I'd like the circular base but I agree on the normal oakley 3 tier taking up more space as opposed to your current ones
