Hi everybody! This is my first Craftster post. I decided to build a Turntable case, also known as a coffin, because my old one didn't have the right layout. I like the "battle style" layout better; that means that the turntables are turned vertical, as opposed to horizontal. Either way, i didn't want to spend $200+ on a store-bought one, so i bought some wood and some wool herringbone cloth and went to town. I designed it on Google SketchUp. This is the result.
This is the case with the lid closed. I do realise that i don't yet have a handle on this to carry it with, but i'm waiting to pick up some vintage suitcases to scavenge those handles.
This is the case open and with the lid removed. The hinges are breakaway hinges so i can either have it open or removed.

Also, i decided to make myself a set of speaker stands from some prethreaded 36" X 1/2" iron pipe and standard flanges. I jig-sawed out Union Jacks as the base from some scrap ply.
All told, this cost about $70 to build and was really surprisingly easy. The hardware was the hardest to find, but good ol' eBay was the place to go for that. It might not be perfect, but i love it and it makes me proud!
If anyone wants better pictures or the actual google sketchup plans, PM me and i'll get it out for you.
