Finally finished Jeff's Walnut Rack to go with the guitar "o) I'll post pics when I get the rack loaded, but Jeff wanted some pics posted straight away, so here you go :smile: :smile: :smile:
Top box for Outlet Strip, Tuner, SMS Preamp, FX tray, GCX Audio Switcher, and Backup Power Amp... Lower box for McIntosh 250. All the walnut is from the same tree, wide enough that no boards are glued for width... with the exception of the FX tray, as I was running out of wide material.

If my rig was that beautiful, my better half might actually let me keep it in the living room instead of the basement.

That is incredible Brian! Love the woodwork, the inlay....I am speechless

Way too beautiful to take on the road though.

When my ship comes sailing in you will get the first call....

Well, it's not for hard-core touring, but it's meant to be taken out.... They are built like a tank; I used Tung Oil for the first coat, and Tru-Oil for the next few, so it can be dinged and scratched, re-oiled and it will still say pretty. And we got some nice Road Cases for them. :smile: :smile: :smile:

seriously beautiful work!

(I'd love one just like it with a roadie included)

my band killer GD tribute band (ice petal flowers )
only has our 2nd gig coming
up in July, NYC ( 2 sets!) but we are far from
playing the type of gigs that would justify
such a gorgeous gear cabinet

one day though, until that day - great pics.
