From Jeff Skierka Designs comes this scaled-up handmade mixtape coffee table. From Jeff’s site:

This coffee table is a 12:1 scaled replica of a cassette tape. It is made of reclaimed maple, walnut and lucite. Dimensions are 47.25″ x 30″ x 5″ with a 3/8″ plexi top. This is a first prototype and one of a kind table. Future versions will be CNC machined out of high grade plywood with a variety of ply combinations and a glass top. This table has been an obsession of mine for 5 years! It is amazing to finally have it come to fruition. The table is completely reversible (sides A and B).

  1. Reblogged this on Yurts And Things and commented:
    Awesome idea, reminds me of the palette coffee table.

    Whaaaat?! Totally having table envy right about now. This would go so perfectly with my double tape deck and extensive mixed tape collection :)

    1. Goli I had no idea. I must confess to being a tape-fanatic as well. I’ve made 50 mixtapes in the past two years solely for my own enjoyment. :)

    All it needs now is a lamp in the form of a scaled-up Bic pen to put in one of the holes.
