  1. Putting all my stereo back together .store bought stands won’t hold it. The last stand I added to it.but it was crappy.
    This one will be solid. I have this thread in the music hall also. But not for the build..

    That is here. I’ll post. And explain what the plan is for each part I plan to build. Some will be fancy. Others just a square hole for a component.

    Any and all ideas will definitely be considered. I’ve already installed. And removed boards. The design changed.
    I’m a little into it.but not far enough to not listen to input.

    It began with the cranking of a CHAINSAW. The old couch had to go ( I found50+ dope baggies in there..I’ve had that couch for years)
    Here’s what’s going in. Starting with the couch.

    Love that you're making your own stand. Wish I could do the same.

    This is what I’ll be using for the “legs” they are the size of a cantaloupe..

    THE QUESTION:: leave them brown like they are..or sand them and do them in the red sodoma. That the stand will be or....

    I have some black ebony stain. I could make them black???

    They will be 8 of these legs on it.. 4 in the front..4 in the back..

  14. Been working slowly on it. Getting the reel-to-reel spot tightened up. So I can continue down to the next component. Which will be the turntables pre-amp


    And a update on the grow

    Killing it with the Electric Sky ES300

  15. Hooked my stereo up real quick so I’d have some music while the build is going on

  16. My pioneer reel-to-reel has had issues with the play button..after researching the problem.and getting a quote on the repairs.. I decided it would be better to just get a new “”upgraded “”version. Mine was a 2 head unit..

    .... now ——-the one I went and got is a AKAI 4 head unit with auto-reverse ( which is a badass function)
    I got it from a guy who was downsizing to move into a appartment..he said he’s owned it for 30 years..and it looks like you just bought it. I had been talking to him a good week about it. And sent him pics of my old one tore apart. And the stand build..he knew I was passionate about it..he told others that inquired,that the unit was sold.. then he offered to sell me a badass BSR equalizer for $25... ( lists on e-bay for $150).. I showed up with $175 for the reel and the eq. He was showing me his setup. 2 turntables a turntable amp and 2 pioneer floor speakers..he said how would you like to have all that...that he showed me..I explained to him I only brought the money for the 2 units I came to get..he said him and his wife were going to donate those items to goodwill.. but after seeing my passion.they decided to “GIVE” me those items. And a box with 40 reels in plastic cases(very nice cases)

    Sometimes it pays to go above and beyond a normal conversation.

  17. Went digging in the storage shed to get my old albums and cassette tapes. I got albums I acquired in the 80’s now those albums are very sought after.. old school rap albums. And to test the turntables he gave me.

  18. And as stated in the first post I made..items will be replaced with silver faced units..after buying the reel..I slipped over 40 miles to another seller and picked up this little gem. And a tuner..

  19. I didn’t pay cash for it 1/2 oz of weed. And got both items..and while I was there. The older woman (who a friend of mine turned me on to) was prepping for a yard sale. And after talking for a good 2 hours.. she “”gave””me my pick of 10 albums.and a FUKIN AMP..

    Man it was my “day”for sure

  20. And this is what got me motivated to build the stand..I was pulling my stuff out of their boxes.and the cheesy stand just wasn’t going to work. I told the wife I was pulling all my shit out and building a new stand..

    All I got was a blank stare,,she knew it was useless to debate me..
