A user on Instructables has shared this suspiciously simple guide to creating your very own turntable.
First of all, gather materials, which include some plywood, a few 9V batteries, a set of speakers, a small amp and some other bits, plus you’ll need tools – a saw, a handful of clamps and a power drill. Fully equipped, you can then build a plinth, which is fully customisable so you can really go to town making it your own.
Steps three and four involve mounting the motor to allow the table turn and building the arm and speaker system. Finally it’s just a case of putting all the bits together and then sitting back to enjoy the lush sounds vibrating from your device.
Apparently in total the DIY deck costs just $20, which is even cheaper than the most basic Crosley turntable and it may even sound better.
See below for the complete list of materials required and click here to read the guide.
Clamps (4 or 5)
Small electric motor (9V battery-powered)
