I made this Record Player Stand for my 1950’s Westinghouse portable record player. My 8-track and cassette players fit on it too. It’s made from a single 2’x4’ sheet of 3/4” Sandeply plywood and 5/8” pine dowel rods from Home Depot and assembled with just wood glue. The legs are the 16” Hairpin table legs from Rockler. I painted the dowel rods and plywood edges black for a sleek look. I was afraid it might wobble or sway because of the dowel rods and legs, but it is really rigid and barely moves. I think the 12 album divider rods give it lots of strength.

Nice design, construction and presentation. I collect old radios and this would make a nice display for some of the tabletop models. Coincidentally (or not), Rockler has the Hairpin Table Leg kits on their website prominently displayed.

Very cool player stand! Like the great design especially the dowels and the legs, totally matches the sofa. Great job!
