This project was more of a restoration upgrade than a scratch build. It started life as a beat-to-hell Tele-Tone tube phonograph, in really rough shape. The box and deck were covered in a horribly tattered canvas/tolex type material, and all of the metal parts were pretty beat up.
I rebuilt the case with lightly spalted pine, and the deck with 1/4” red oak ply. It got a fresh speaker with a nice tweed grill cloth, and the platter and tone-arm were refinished in hammered copper. I topped it off with a cork platter pad, and a retro cloth-covered twisted power cord.
