Grandma got my daughters a karaoke machine for Christmas so I built them a little kid sized stand for the microphone. It's 1/2 solid rod inside of 1/2 inch EMT tubing all welded to a 1/4 steel base. The pinch bolt is to allow it to telescope for adjustment from 4 feet to 6 feet tall as they grow. The knob is an old kitchen drawer pull I drilled out and tapped and loctited a stud in to. Don't forget the felt on the bottom to protect the floor so grandma doesn't have me sanding her wood floor smooth after the girls get crazy with it. To finish I powdercoated it in chrome.
