      Custom Turntables by Mike Disher

      Came across these amazing custom turntables by Mike Disher. He has built a couple of great models including this beautiful version featuring a VPI platter, Rega Arm, and custom green-acrylic plinth. Here's a bit about him:

      My name is Mike Disher, and I have the audio bug. I'm also a hobbyist inventor and all around DIY guy. About 5 years ago I decided to try my hand at building a custom turntable. Turntables and mechanical watch and clock movements fascinate me.

      I view them as functional pieces of kinetic art. I based my turntable design on the legendary Rega P3, and I created a new, custom acrylic plinth and a set of feet. I also devised a way to hide the motor, and I improved the motor mounting system. The plinth rests on small silicone dots, providing added isolation.

      The result was a very modern looking table. I called it the P3 Skeleton. Skeleton is a watchmaking term for a movement in which material is removed from the plates and bridges to reveal the inner workings.

      Check out all of his work here.
