djn! Thanks for your reply!! I'll start the modifications soon. Should be a fun winter project. I'm going to lengthen it to at least 12 inches, maybe a little more. BTW I love your work, especially the turntable!

I'm using Slate now but I'm going to try this cutting board.
Where did you find that cutting board? I would love to try that too for a similar project.

Thanks!!

Too bad this thread died an early death...

I previously built a Baltic birch plinth for my 301 and recently found an 8 by 4 sheet of a much better quality plywood.

My plan is to cnc mill a 6mm aluminum top plate followed by 3 sheets of BB then a layer of acrylic, followed by 3 more sheets of BB and then a final sheet of 6mm Aluminum.

FWIW.........I'm presently using a bamboo cutting board supported by Vibrapods under my lowly Pioneer 112D and it makes a noticeable improvement.

BTW, the TT is supported by adjustable spikes for precise leveling.
