Wooden turntable, anyone?

After successfully making his own delightfully funky but functional US$5 wooden tonearm, German maker Charles Altmann decided to keep a-goin and try his hand at creating a wooden turntable to go with it. He built the whole thing for around $50.

    Hi Gareth, This is James from retrothing.com. I spend many hours hunting for cool projects like this one, which I posted last week. I’d appreciate a link back, rather than a hat-tip to someone who found it on our blog.

    But that’s where *I* found it, not on retrothing, so that’s where I linked. I just subscribed to your RSS feed, so from now on, anything that I do get from your site will most definitely get a link-back.
