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.
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.
