Before & After Stereo Racking

Z & I built a new stereo rack out of the old record stand.  I reused as much wood as possible.  As a first build it’s fine.  If I were to do it again I’d probably try and figure out some way to put a hidden channel down the middle for all the cables and obviously hide the access holes behind the devices better.  I got a little crazy with my 1″ hole bit.  Also, the LG Optimus doesn’t take very good photos.  But I think the rack looks alright for no money.

Kirsten’s DIY Pipe Desk With Salvaged Door

I meant to put up this link to Kirsten McCrea’s nice addition to the world of cast iron pipe based tables using salvaged tops a while ago. She has both a blog and a professional page as she is a visual artist living in Montreal. I wanted to provide a link back to her desk, in part because it turned out so nicely, and I want more people to see how great these tables and desks can turn out with such humble materials.
