Finally it`s completed!

Took awhile but finding a useful block of time at the weekend is always a challenge :(

Well that was very informative, learnt a fair few things, i.e. things not to do.. Biggest one was buy a proper thicknesser, not a 150 quid lemon from screwfix :)

Pretty much all my problems came from my planed wood not being true, and not having the patience to try and fix them, thought I could get away with half a mil here and there.. WRONG.

But in the end it turned out pretty good, most of the surfaces are covered or hidden so and tearout or other mistakes get hidden :)

I`ve also got a post on the design forum where I roughed out the original plan.

cheers

Looks good to me. I see you've upgraded to vinyl. I much prefer the sound of vinyl than cd's.

Yeah, it`s more personnel, every play will be different as the record deteriorates, we have a record night every few weeks, though usually we just use the squeezebox (mp3 network player).

It`s more of a fetishistic thing, like my book collection, rarely read them (kindle is my preferred medium), but just can`t stop myself buying books from the Folio Society etc. :)

Thanks, nice mix of new and old eh ?

Only thing I might have changed is the plinth could do with be a bit lower.

Yes, very satisfying, thanks for the advice :)

Next project is going to be a window seat with built in book shelf, should be a lot easier, though will need to probably use proper joints instead of biscuits.

Very nice looking
I would have put a full panel in at the back to hide the wiring more

Thanks :)

I did consider that to start with, but the ps3 and home server machines can generate a fair bit of heat, so I considered it a better idea to give them a good supply of air.

The wires can be tidied out of the way.
