Maybe I should tell little bit about my projects. I started to think about building a turntable of my own about two yars ago.I saw teres audios wooden turntables, and was inspired. I had thorens td 320 turntable and I started by making a platter out of wood to it. Sound got better and then I made a complete turntable out of plywood, using parts of thorens(bearing, subplatter and motor). After that I made platter out of mahogany and the plinth out of plywood. I made the bearing myself.

My goal was to make my own unipivot tonearm, and then I saw phy-hp:s Salaberts tonearm, and decided to try to make my own. I got It done, and It sounds good!

I have new projects in my head all the time, and I will put some pictures here when I start to build something new.

The platter is made out of mahogany, and oiled with uncoloured wood oil. The Plinth was made out of plywood(30mm thick) and oiled with dark wood oil.

nice job, how about the motor ? AC or DC, I give you my idea is to use a old direct drive tt as the motor, and use a really very thin elastic thread (from clothing material supply) for the belt. the only thing you have to do is turn both by hand first and power on, ratio almost 1:1 very quite and smooth, and the bearing of a direct drive platter is much better than any other power motor, keep going and good luck also happy new year
