Wayback Woodworking: A Retro Stereo Cabinet
I often get a kick out digging through our old projects, and with 33-years worth of them, I often find some wondrous things. Some works leave me questioning the wisdom of previous woodworkers and others still look good.
This stereo cabinet does show its age a little, and it can’t blame the old equipment it’s holding. (And what’s with the turntable at the top? Aren’t most people too short to throw on a record 6€² from the ground?) Its lines present a retro futurism that is dated for some. I, however, love it and it makes me a bit nostalgic. Also, I’m a music geek with a mixer, turntable and stacks of records. I could see a cabinet such as this holding all that gear as well as my more contemporary music machines: a laptop and mp3 player.
The beat goes on.
