destroy good records just to make an unwieldly sidetable? count me out.
anyway, why glue the records together? put two sides on it and store real records in it. put a plate glass on top if you feel the records are too uneven.
Why is this not a turntable cabinet?
Or more ironically, a giant concealed iPod speaker system?
Awesome. Super cool. But it’s plywood with a faux-representational photograph of albums and Ikea legs. And why is this $450?
I don’t think there’s any records involved. It’s just the sleeves, and if you have some other way to store the records it’s just useless cardboard.
The actual product description says “faux-album surface”, which suggests that the description here may be erroneous.
In any case: De gustibus. Garage-sale LPs are available for pennies, since there just isn’t much demand for them (especially if they’re in scratched or otherwise worn condition). I’ve seen folks do other projects that used LPs simply as a substrate; if the recording is widely available, repurposing a few copies isn’t any worse (or any better) than murdering a few books as raw materials for a craft project.
Actually no albums were harmed in the making of the
Album Side Table. It is a faux-representational photograph of albums. It is structured with birch plywood, wrapped in giclee canvas and coated with poly resin.
LONG LIVE VINYL!
Very cool! I am an art gallerist and curator…I approve thoroughly!
Beckett, thank you for the correction!
At first sight the construction looked suspicious (since the LP sleeves are empty and hollow, it roused questions how strong and stable the construction is), but then I grasped that the LP structure was fake. It looks brisk and funny!
can you open it and store things in it?
Hmmm, Steely Dan’s “Countdown to Ecstasy”, The Clash’s “Give Em Enough Rope”, Tom Waits “Nighthawks at the Diner”, good stuff, The Jackson’s “Destiny”, WTF?
what came first?
i think this did
