The Silvan Audio Workshop wants your help to expand from hobby to professional operation.
We’ve seen a lot of unusual turntables recently, from a working model made out of Lego to one that looks like the Millennium Falcon. If those don’t quite fit your living room’s carefully chosen décor, then these hand-made wooden turntables from the Silvan Audio Workshop might offer the perfect solution.
The small company is formed of a father and son team based in Seattle, which takes components from high-end turntable manufacturer Rega and installs them in a base of hardwood from American black walnut trees. The pair behind the company have been making these as a hobby for a while, but they’re looking for backers on Kickstarter to help outfit their two workspaces to increase efficiency and volume.
They’re looking for $14,000, but $750 will get you one of their entry-level Archer turntables. If you’ve already got a Rega turntable, they’ll convert it for just $250. Currently their funding stands at $3,773 – you can help them out over at Kickstarter, or just gaze at their handiwork below.
