A number of years ago I decided to go back to my music roots and re-build a home stereo system. Fortunately with the use of Craigslist I found some beautiful used equipment that I could have never afforded when I was younger. I also found many sites that sold record albums pretty much dirt cheap. Having acquired the speakers, the amp, turntable etc. I wanted to build an music center that was very practical. This is the unit that I build. The turntable etc. are on top just below eye level making it easy to change records. The top draw is basically for cleaning equipment, guitar stuff for the most part just a storage area. The second draw, which has all of the components on top of it, pulls out so I can easily get at all the wiring that goes into it without pulling the whole unit away from the wall.
The bottom is for now open. Eventually I will build another pull out draw that will house all of my albums making them easy to get at and protected.
The unit is made out of birch ply with popular trim stained with Minwax Cherry stain.
This project was a lot of fun and works exactly the way I wanted it to.

Nice looking cabinet, just finished one for my Dad a few weeks ago. Sure an old system but he had not had anything to play music in the shop for 30 years. LOL
