how do speaker stands work?

no this isnt about acoustics, etc..i need to know how they work!

more precisely...i'm tired of looking for stands that are tall enough for my 16lb 8 x 10 bookshelf surround speakers, all the ones i can find are either too short, or when they are tall enough they cant hold my size speakers!

soo...seeing as though i'm a draftsman in a steel fab shop i'll have the guys downstairs fabricate me a set. but what i need to know from you guys is..

how do the stands i see online "hide" the wire...is there just a hole in top of one of the support tubes and then a hole at the the bottom?

how are the stands fillable with sand? does the top plate come off so i can just pour sand down the other supports?

also how long are the floor spikes? 1/2"? 3/4"?

any pics would be greatly appreciated..thanks, tom
