This shelf was made in 1999 it is made out of laminated Beech for the circles and the frame i welded together out of steel. I old school friend of my that has a company that make Aluminum parts helped my to mill the aluminum details that hold the Beech half circles together and bolt them to the steel frame.
The shelf’s is made out off 24mm birch plywood.
The shelf was original thought as a giant Hifi bench but today it also house the TV so one of the shelfs has been removed.
I have made two round furnitures and the basic idea come from a furniture I noticed in a store in London many years before I made these once.
Rondo 1 is the cabinet that I also have posted here and Rondo 2 is a variant of Rondo 1 with a flat top on top to act like a Hifi bench. Rondo 2 was sold and I have no picture of it.
All the wooden parts is finished with a oil based lacquer.

Very clever with an industrial-organic feel (if there is such a thing). I bet these would be a hit in the trendy yuppy downtown loft crowd. No offense meant to any trendy yuppy loft livers here;) I really like it!

Excellent work! Brings to mind the Netsuke display stands that I am so wanting to make.
Great mixture of static and flowing movements… industrial and natural at the same time.
You should be proud of yourself…

Thanks for sharing.

Is that speaker setup the fostex recommended for fe107? I was thinking about building one. Been into audio for years especially speaker building.

Yes Dantimdad it is Foestex FE107 that I have used. Fostex
The sound is really good in them and they go hand in hand with my TDL Transmission line speakers that I have as front.
My plan is two build backloaded horns for the front, based on FE208
But then I come around to do it is another thing.
If you want to know about my lessens learn from the speaker build or measurements curves please let me know.
