Oak Forte Risers

Recommended Posts

Nice pair of “homemade” oak risers that fit the forte.....


“Free” just pay shipping from Chattanooga.

 

I tried to make them work with a pair of walnut but found the proper set.

 

 Thanks

The oak veneer is on both sides. I bet it was a cabinet or bookshelf at one time. These are more solid than the walnut ones currently used.

What's with that extra plywood cap with old paint and janky 1/2" plywood screwed to the inside? Couldn't afford the extra expense of new wood and some extra hardware? What a deal. I have some solid oak scrap wood around here in better shape anyone could have for far less than a hundred dollar bill.

is this what you would consider causing "controversy" on a members for sale thread??

That would not be acceptable.

Dang, where can I get one of those moderator passes?

These are not original Klipsch parts, or even good reproductions. These are scraps of wood. The asking price clearly does not commensurate the sale item or quality.

GLWS , am I correct that Both risers have a different wood  grain -

These are the same oak grain patter. One was sanded and walnut stain applied. 
 

Ok so here’s the deal now. If some one wants em just pay shipping. So sorry to offend Captain Wood Worker with less than cabinet grade speakers risers that sit on the floor beneath the speaker.  
 

These were sold with a pair or Forte ii I purchased from another forum member in Chicago. I can’t comment on origins or build quality other than they hold a forte 3 5/8” off the floor.

I was inspired by the moderators to question price, quality, validity, of any sale thread I feel like. I stand by my question and subjective comment.

 

so its ok for you to bash a members for sale thread, but when someone questions your pricing on your for sale thread you get all bent out of shape & tell them they are causing "controversy" & to remove their comments???  gotcha!

Old news. It is now ok for anyone to question and comment. Not just me. Anyone. You too. No one is special here. We learned all about this prior to this thread creation. I did not and will not bash any thread. I feel like YOU are trying to bully me. That is not OK. STOP.

This is the way.
