Default More plinths

Here are some pictures of plinths I made for myself and a couple of friends. The first is my Garrard 301:

Well, I don't know, looks a bit flimsy to me...

I love the 'vertical' use of plywood, never thought of that

That's really not plywood per se. It's a German engineered material that is made up of beech veneer laminated under pressure with waterproof glue into 6" x 8" x 20" blocks. They were left over from a recent Exxon LNG storage facility project off of Gibraltar and I resawed them to make the plinths. Thankfully the resin was not impregnated into the wood and was relatively soft so it didn't tear up the cutting edges on my equipment.
