So here’s another project from a little while ago… My room mate at the time had this antique looking vinyl record player that he used to play his collection of old albums on. We didn’t have a stand or table that seemed to fit the little guy so I decided to make this one. Its just about 26 inches high at the top (tall enough to be an end table at the arm of the couch). I built it with some crappy pine that i bought from HD. I used simple butt joints throughout and the line details are just done on the table saw. You can tell that they aren’t extremely clean but if you squint a little they look amazing! LOL! The apron detail was done by just cutting 1/8 in. deep kerfs with the TS. I dressed it up with a 3/4 in. trim at the bottom. I painted the whole thing with satin black paint (i was into that at the time…) and then put a little furniture slider peg in the bottom of each leg. I feel pretty good about how this came out although there are many things that I would do differently if I were to do it again today… The best part about this project is that my roommate/best friend Chad loves this thing and has it in the front room of his new house…

Someone else would have done bricks and boards but you build a real table. Cool.

I’m sure the main reason he loves it is that you made it for him, the best part of woodworking for me. I like the table too. Seeing all those LPs in the photo reminded me of how heavy they were, not fun when it came time to move them.

Have your say...
