Studio Construction

Filed under: Studio Construction — jasony @ 11:10 pm

Well I’m getting good at making those studio rack cases. I finished the smaller one today and put the lyptus accents on the front. I also made the solid wood top. If I did it correctly the whole box will slide on its casters underneath my mixer with only about 1/8 inch to spare. If I didn’t to it right you’ll probably hear some cussin’. Luckily my mixer legs have adjustable feet so there’s some tolerance for error there.

I accidentally made the top too short by about 1/2 inch. No big deal. The whole box will live under my mixer so unless you pull it all the way out you’ll never see it. I could have done without the solid wood top since you’ll most likely never see it, but you know me. I couldn’t live with myself if I had kludged it.

The oil finish is spectacular. The case is already up in the studio waiting its load of equipment tomorrow. Wiring will commence very soon.

CERN’s Large Hadron Collider is about to go online. I can’t wait to see it happen!
