My home studio is a big reason of what brought me back into wood working.

My first project was a desk for the mixer. I used pine boards, and it’s pretty bad. And the monitor shelf sits too high. They need to be at ear height. I have designed a new desk that I’ll be working on after a few other things that I need to finish.

I needed a studio rack, and even the most basic unit was a couple hundred bucks, and they were just wooden boxes. And I started thinking about the various racks I had seen, and combined what I liked into a single unit.

This is a dual bay rack that tilts. I use a dowel as a locking pin. The lower bay’s are rack size, to be used for power amps, and extraneous gear.

Rack 1

The next unit is a studio cubby. 2 rack bays on the bottom, and a 16 inch space between the cubes, and the bottom, which is perfect for binders, studio logs, manuals, and whatever. The cubbies are used for mic’s, CD’s, and patch cords.

Studio Cubby.

Sitting on top of the cubby is the 2×12 Combo amp that I made out of an old tube amp head that I had. I love the look of it, but I think I’m going to redo it, with hand cut dovetails, and I’d like the speaker front to tilt back a bit more.

Oh, and what studio would be complete without a bar?

Bar

The recessed cabinets are lined with mirrors in the back, and have low watt halogen lights.

That is pretty much it, except for the old pool table which isn’t shown. It’s a fun setup, and i really love improving it a step at a time.

Very cool post. Except for the bar. Everyone knows that rock and roll and alcohol don’t mix.

Looks like a you’ve got a 1604 there. I should know because I work for Mackie!

Yep, it’s one of the older VLZ’s. I upgraded from a 1202. I’d love to get an older 24 channel 8 bus, or a Digital 8, when I can afford it.

Mackie does good work. Are you at the Woodinville site?

No I actually work at an engineering office in Victoria, BC. I wrote a great deal of the software for version 5 of the d8b.

Thats cool!! I worked on the first iteration of the DirectMusic composition engine for Microsofts DirectX. Then I went on to work on MP3 and Video Codecs for RealNetworks…(*disclaimer, YES I know Realplayer sucks. I filed a TON of bugs there about the things that everyone hates, and they were ignored. It’s why I left.)

You guy’s aren’t talking about a new kind of woodworking are you?

Or is that the new math?

I didn’t understand a thing!

Nice studio, but I recommend the bar theme not be carried through to the wood shop!

Looks real good!

I see your point, I’d be missing fingers with the bar in the shop.
