I DIYed mine years ago by epoxying cheap ceramic ramekins and teacups and chopstick holders together filled with kitty litter and sand. Worked like a charm. Given that these items can be had in various colors and even some decorated patterns - and they are NOT large - you can really go to town to fit your decor. Mine came out looking like a smaller version of the famous commercially available lifters and I was never embarrassed by the look, nor disappointed in the minor difference they make sonically.
sounds intriguing; any chance you could post a pic? thanks ia!
A bad picture to be sure and it looks crappy after several years of disuse.
It consists of 3 ceramic pieces bought for next to nothing at World Market: bottom is a small ramekin, middle is an upended tea cup, top is a chopstick holder. It is epoxied together and filled with kitty litter and sand. At very bottom black is just a round of neoprene. On top the goop is just a dollop of silicone caulk.
Works very well! Cheap as dirt. Since it's a DIY, you can paint it or decorate it, or even buy the pieces many places with baked on designs to your heart's content.
Raises off the floor by about 4". So it works pretty much like the high priced spread, only it isn't as big, bulky and ugly.
