I’m a fan of the vintage turntable stand. I love it because it’s not only a beautiful piece of decor, but also a functional piece that will come in handy during a rainy day. The design is simple, the wood grain is beautiful, and it is sturdy enough to last you or your friends for a long time.
The problem is that the current version of the turntable stand is only made of 2x4s. So unless you are ready to spend several hundred dollars, you might not find yourself with a stand to keep on your countertop.
I can give you a few reasons for this…
1) Not all turntables are made of wood, and 2) not all turntables are made from 2x4s.
The turntable stand we have in our shop is made from 2x4s. If you don’t have those, you might as well look into buying a piece of wood that is two-by-four-sided.
But more importantly, you need to decide if you want to spend money on a stand that is only made from 2x4s or if you want to spend money on a stand you can turn around, put on your counter and turn around while you wait for your favorite records to play. It’s a matter of preference, and it’s a matter of making a choice.
But if you have the budget to buy a 2×4 stand, you should definitely check out the stand we’ve made specifically for turntables.
Weve made a stand that you can turn around and put on your counter. It is completely made out of 2x4s, but if your wood is thin, you could use a smaller section of wood to make the stand, but then your turntable will be a little heavier. If you have a big enough budget, you can get a stand made out of 2x4s that is adjustable and that you can turn around and put on your counter.
A stand for turntables is basically the same thing. You basically want to put a flat surface on top of a turntable, and the stand is basically just a way of allowing you to rotate the turntable. The stand we made is adjustable, and we can add extra plates to it to make it a little extra strong.
It’s a simple enough process. You just need to drill a hole into the bottom of the stand and screw it in. You can also buy stand attachments that attach to turntables that allow you to position different plates on it.
