I started out making drawings for a HiFi equipment cabinet for a customer. This looked just the same but with a flat top to host a record-player. I liked the design so much so I made one for my self, but made it completely round.
This cabinet is made in 1996 with a limited amount of tools, at the time I think I own just Bosch smallest handheld circular saw a jigsaw and the smallest Bosch router.
It is galvanized stell around the cabinet and the rest is 18mm birch plywood. The steel I had manufacture at a local steel shop.

Nice design idea. It inspires me to use this concept in other ways. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for all nice words.
Some of you asked about having a look inside. So I have uploaded some more picture of the cabinet.
The steel construction inside is build to be hit by a tank:-) I was just learning to MIG weld at the time so I might have overdone it just a little bit.:-)
As could be seen on the picture the backside is done with fiberboard, not anything I would do to day. But small budget and the lack of skill at the time dictated the design on the part that didn’t showed.

It looks like some sort of bomb shelter from the Cold War era. It also feels like there are secrets inside.
