Retro Walnut Record Player Consule
This is one of my first major woodworking projects, I have been woodworking for 18 months, having no previous experience with any woodworking tools. When I became unemployed in 2009, I enrolled in the Cape Fear College wooden Boat building course in Wimington, NC to learn some woodworking skills. I have absolutely loved learning the tools and techniques furniture makers use.
The unit I made has a walnut exterior with baltic birch plywood interior and back. I came up with a jig that I could place across the doors that consisted of two rails that were cut to a pleasing curve. I then ran a router with a guide and a flush cutting bit down the rail to cut the curves in the door, once one curve was cut, I simply flipped the router jig and ran the router the opposite direction which created the wave effect on the doors. I cut half blind dovetails at on the ends of the unit, top and bottom. The top has a soft closing lid and I purchased some retro chrome legs online. This was an awesome learning experience, would love to have some of you gurus comment on the piece. Thanks!! Robin
