After having two ‘comebacks’ in ten odd years where clients tried to slide their stands and broken two feet we decided to fit solid aluminium feet in future. This is in line with our policy to keep on improving our stands.
We are currently busy with two exciting display cabinets for a client. We also delivered a long outstanding Birdseye Maple with Wenge inserts coffee table over the weekend.
I have been quite busy recently. Just finished a cabinet for a client (which can be seen here).
I am also busy with an awesome revamp process for quite an old Thorens TD125. Have already spent some hours on this project.
Here is one intriguing photo.
The female kettle plug was flush mounted.
What the original plinth base looks like.
Some more pictures of the build in progress:
The plinth before it got 5 fresh coats of Standox gunmetal paint.
The cavities of the base filled with a secret formula
And the end product.
Have finished the coffee table a while back and it is soon on its way to Mauritius where it will have a glass top fitted.
Came out very nice and is solid enough to use it as a bench to sit on as well.
This tree was cut down in our yard about a year ago. Decided to cut it up in managable sizes and push it through the thicknesser/planer.
This is the result and might make an interesting coffee table.
A little bit of progress. The feet were cut for the table and the tabletop slabs cut to length.
Quickly grabbed two photos of partial LeTraps. On their way to Durban where they will receive their stuffing and sleeves.
We are working in conjunction with a well known person in the audio industry(Harold Day) to develop modular bass traps .
LeTrap will be unique in looks, functionality and aesthetically pleasing.
Monitor this news for further info.
Did some more work this morning on the first order for bass traps:
Between all the other work, there is some progress on LeOne. Corners rounded and first oil coats applied.
I am working on the development of a unique high end HiFi stand.
There will be quite a few exclusives (never seen before features) in the stand name LeOne.
LeOne will be one of a handful stands that use solid wood in its shelf construction. The end thickness will be approximately 45mm making it a substantial solid slab of wood.
Progress will be posted.
Got the Kiaat and Maple during the week.
Wood planed and cut for the shelves.
And then the glue-up starts.
It must be mentioned that even though the following pictures of the glue-up looks quite standard, quite a bit of work is done that is not seen.
Channels are machined in the wood that is filled with a viscoelastic damping compound and some leadshot. These fillings are used to reduce vibration within the shelf.
All the glue-ups done, rough sanded and cut to size.
