I have been combining my interest in woodworking and audio equipment for nearly 40 years. Some of my earlier pieces in this regard were monstrosities – huge pieces that dominated the room. Over the years these audio designs have gotten simpler and simpler.
The design is another personal project with “rafter tails” similar to the “speaker stands” I posted previously.
It was specifically made to house my vintage Marantz 2285b receiver and Sony dvp-s9000es DVD/CD (SACD) player. I will probably design one more piece in this series to house my favorite CD’s.

As I sometimes do, I have strayed a bit from what might be considered strict G&G styling – but the G&G influence is hard to miss in this piece nonetheless.

The woods used are bubinga, Peruvian walnut, and ebony.

The G & G influence is definitely showing through… a real Darrel Peart style nonetheless.

Good job.

I personnaly own a Marantz 1530 Receiver. The front face of that receiver is gorgous but the rest is just a plain black metal cover. I have been thinking about making a wood cabinet for it for a while now. I just can’t rest on a design yet. Ill take my time .. no rush …

i really love your style darrell, and when you do include the g and g style it always seems to give it the look it needs, but yet they dont look the same …im going to be making a entertainment cabinet with black walnut and pecan…and just might throw in some other woods…that might be a little unorthodox…but here..in the world of wood working i like the fact that there is quite a b it of latitude…thanks for showing it darrell

Thanks everyone!
Simon – the WCV-115 cabinet was originally made for the 1530 – might be a place to start.
grizzman – would love to see your entertainment cabinet when its done.

Nice Marantz! And lovely table. You’re rapidly drawing me to this style.
