Analogs: Joel Scilley's "Audiowood" turntables
Joel Scilley is a thinking man's carpenter, having grabbed an MA from Carnegie Mellon and a PhD in media studies from Pitt before heading back to the Bay Area to make handcrafted turntables. Like you do.
Scilley makes some out of his "Audiowood
" players out of burlwood that has a more organic feel. Others look more modern. Having grown up in the Ozarks, I'm somewhat inured to the charms of burlwood crafts, so I prefer the modern ones, but "Barky", the model below made from a cross-section of a trunk, it downright cute.
The Audiowood designs will be shown off in Oakland starting the 14th. [via Mocoloco
