For a long time I've wanted to make a record player from scratch. My old man has a ton of vinyls begging to be played, and also the design aspect of this machine was appealing. Designing a beautiful and satisfying piece of art was the goal for this project -- I wanted to make something that was a pleasure to look at and a pleasure to use. The project was a perfect mix of art and engineering. With a little help from my much smarter-than-me friends, I got this thing done.
