This is a console I envisioned that housed a record player. The design is a hybrid of many styles that I have collected along my carpentry path. Now it holds my sons Xbox so I can keep a clean surface.
The front slides and is covered in tweed. One sliding side has a hole cut to allow the remote signal to change the channel.
I am a student of Japanese woodworking and did my best to use as much of the style as possible. So no nails and a small amount of glue to brace the top.
I purchased a new Gyokucho ryoba for the job and used it on about 80% of the cuts. I am very pleased with the performance of the tool.
The second photo is the first design idea, I taped the pieces on and let it sit in front of me until I came up with a different idea.
