Speaker coupling options

Hey guys.
I have been doing a lot of DIY of late and made some stands for my Yamaha NS1000M speakers.

I made some out of wooden worktop and resemble the Kenrick Sounds stands.

My question is this.

1. Should I couple the speaker to the stands with some feet, or
2. should I sit it directly - ie cabinet to wood stand
3. same as above but the feet of the stands
4. If so what do I use for the feet
5. has anyone tried deflex panels to couple speakers to the floor or to stands?
