Thanks! I considered using epoxy for the knot but chose to keep the piece as natural as possible. I did spend quite a bit of time cleaning out the dirt and debris in that area but all in all I have to say I loved working with cypress and I am very happy I chose to go with it. Your vinyl collection definitely has a chance! I feel a good record set up always starts up a good conversation. FREE THE VINYL!
Thank you! The hardest part would have to be constructing the base with all the big pieces. Luckily I had help to line everything up in the beginning. Coming up with a design for storing the records was also a task because I wanted an adjustable book end style to hold the records up. I went with a dovetail design and it worked out great. I would also say that measuring for the barn door kit is a bit tricky and doesn’t leave much wiggle room for error. Definitely learned a lot during the build and my ryobi tools were invaluable.
