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.
