A few pics of the rack I made using Quadraspire legs.
The timber is Karri, I pulled it out of an old nursing home, timber would be approximately 80-100 years old.

The aluminum pulley looks awesome! Any chance you could ask your locally machinist to make one for me?

I can definitely ask him for you, not sure he will be keen as he’s flat out. This was a bit of a one off, I’ll let you know.

Awesome mate, you’ve done a very nice job. Bet the system sounds amazing.


I had to build a plinth for the TNT to sit on as it was too big for the cabinet. Used mdf base with some wavebar and some jarrah floorboards I had left over and laminated them together. Then edged it all in solid jarrah. I then used some Isoacoustics stage 1 isolators. It came up very nice.

I'd say very nice, more along the lines of outstanding! Beautiful implementation of some 'leftovers' :o

The transformation of the Table, along with your Craftsmanship is clearly an extremely rewarding endeavor, Bravo :D
