If you can live with just in and out from the wall, you could do something similar to what I did with the credenza.

Possibly route pockets in the bottom of the legs and slip a narrow wheel inside. I used a bolt, but maybe with a very hard wood you could make a classy peg/dowel axel.

Though with a quick look the narrowest wheel I found was 1Ē, with a 2x leg youíd only have about 1/4Ē on either side to support the axel. But I think it would look good if you could pull it off (I love being able to pull mine out from the wall for hookups and changes). Oh! Maybe you could make a wooden wheel!?!

Hereís how mine came out, but a wooden version of this (I havenít needed the feet)

Considering how much is involved to get this right , I’m going with a change of plans.

Best case scenario I would like a rack that could hover above the subwoofer . I was going to build something that has a main column to the right ,and has platforms attached to it for each level .
They would have a floating shelf look . But the bottom platform to hold it up vertically would have the subwoofer sitting on it, causing vibration issues .
So my next plan is to build it in such a way that the right side is hinged to the wall , making it so I can angle it the way I like , plus turn it 45 degrees to access the back .

Seeing as it will be connected to the wall, I can have the subwoofer sitting under it on the carpet .
But for the most part wood is out . I’m going to see if I can weld 2” square tubing without leaving an ugly puddle .
Each 20” square platform that I weld up out of square tubing will have a wood platform resting on it , and another layer glued under it to hold it in place , so there will still be wood involved for the platforms tops

This isn’t a very good visualization,but it will be a simular concept(except mine won’t be going to the floor ) ,as I’ll have the audio sitting on shelves simular to this, but welded to a main column which may be 2x4inch steel tubing for strength.

I’d like to have it going to the floor ,but I just don’t think it’s a good practice to have the subwoofer sitting on the bottom plate of the rack vibration wise

Rick, I didn't read through all the posts, so here is my two cents worth. Check out Transtint dye. You can mix it with just about anything. I think I used denatured alcohol. Water would also work, but would most likely raise the grain on your project, so I say no to water.

Here is a project I made for a family friend. This is birch plywood and Transtint. You want black, you will get black! And you can see the grain of the wood.

Note: It is hard to photograph black stuff.
