I have been thinking about building a record player cabinet for years now but I never had a good idea for the design. This week it finally came to me. This is the perfect combination of Storage, Flip Through Display, Functionality and Design!
This is one of my favorite builds ever-I hope you like it just as much!

  • I think I would have dadoed where two pieces meet at 90 degrees. But then I don't have a Festool domino joiner. I wonder though, not from a structural integrity standpoint, but from a stylistic one: would dadoes have looked "nicer"? Perhaps for a modern piece like yours it would be a toss-up. Nice to see original designs being created.

  • Den Schrank würd' ich mir sofort in die Wohnung stellen, ja vielleicht sogar versuchen nachzubauen (mit ein bisschen Hilfe vom Profi 😅 ). Ich finde die Design-Idee wirklich schön, halte das Video für professionell gedreht & geschnitten, und man erkennt die solide Handwerkskunst. Wirklich toll anzuschauen! (...und am Ende auch noch nach der genau richtigen Platte gegriffen! "... but I'm a pure new pleasure seeker" 😉 )

  • Das ist tatsächlich eines meiner Lieblingsprojekte von dir, auch wenn ich es noch besser gefunden hätte, wenn du die Lautsprecher richtig eingebaut hättest und nicht die JBL's rein gestellt, aber das Design ist echt Top! Allein schon wie du bei 3:15 die Verleimung durch die Schwerkraft mit einem Jig gemacht hast, ist mal wieder absolut genial!

I really like your use of tape. The way you made that template was genius. This old fart learned a couple things from you. I subbed and I'm looking forward to checking out your channel.

  • Cute aesthetics, I guess, but no audiophile with an ounce of experience (or pride) would ever place speakers in a box like that, low to the floor. Any design expertise that the speaker mfg incorporated to try and get good performance from a small monitor (best placed on stands) is tossed out the window with such an arrangement. You would have been far better off incorporating some type of small platform atop those end sections for the speakers to rest on, with the goal of getting the tweeters at ear-level when seated. This is an exercise in design only - definitely not in optimizing sonic potential.

  • Hello Laura, I’m a french woodworker, i’ve seen a lot of your videos. I’m suscribed to your NLworld Channel. i’ve seen sometimes you use tape when you stick, or when you cut. In France, woodworkers don’t use tape generaly. Can you tell me the brand of the differents tapes you use please? And can you explain me why you use differents color of tapes? Sometimes green tape, sometimes yellow tape. I’m interested in buying tape, for assembly when i realise sticking, or when i’m cutting plywood for exemple. Maybe the tapes have différents caracteristics ? Thank you. Olivier.

  • see you took lessons from adam savage's storage system in youre workshop , need to do that here , my system resembles that of der ludolphs (das stapel princip ) been looking for that fineer banding online , want to use it when i build my kitchen cabinets, it looks nice makes the wood look like a solid slab the cabinet turned out nice , might had made the curves and the frame the speakercloth tightens around slightly different but all in all its a good fit for the interior its sitting in

  • Belle réalisation bravo, par contre sur le plan acoustique le choix d'enfermer es JBL dans un caisson est discutable, en fait si esthétiquement c'est bien, le résultat sonore doit être un tantinet caverneux, dommage derrière une platine vinyle. Un pouce levé quand même pour la réalisation.
