Mix tape coffee table for my wife.
12:1 scale right down to the ink, oak plywood for the top and bottom, 2×12 with 5/8” dowels for the winders and inside tape, red oak for outside tape and side guides, white oak legs and plexiglass for the windows. Front opens for keyboard, mouse and remotes.
Didn’t know I was gunna paint it until the night before it was done. I found her favorite mix-tape in an old cassette holder in the trunk of our Buick century (which is how old you have to be to own one).
It’s from valentine’s day but I’m new to the site and this is my favorite project so far this year.
Hope you like it, have fun

thank you, rtbrmb the first person to see it asked for a 8-track coffee table, I was thinking of floppy disk end tables.

So I suppose your backyard deck is also 12:1 so you can take it out there to play this beauty!

Cool design and execution, thanks for showing us this off the wall project!
