Is there a better way to display and play your vinyl records than a record console you made yourself? We think not!
Join this amazing 7 day in-person class to learn valuable woodworking techniques from furniture maker and instructor Philip Morley. Philip will guide the class through the steps needed to craft this beautiful, and functional piece of musical art. Although this piece is designed around being a record console, don’t let that stop you if you have another use in mind.
In this class we will work with solid wood, plywood and commercial veneer to create this sleek and elegant cabinet designed by Phil. The instructor will share his experience with the class and teach us how to use multiple types of joints to construct a cabinet and base. Of course, this project will be capped off with a modern sliding tambour door.
