Μετέτρεψε ένα vintage ηχείο σε ένα επικό μπαρ για ποτά!


Μια μέρα ένας άνδρας καθώς γυρνούσε σπίτι, είδε πετάμενο από την μεριά του αυτό το vintage ηχείο. Μη θέλοντας να αφήσει αυτό το κατάλοιπο του παρελθόντος να πάει χαμένο, αυτός το φόρτωσε  στο αμάξι, υπολογίζοντας ότι κάπως θα το αξιοποιούσε.

Δείτε και μόνοι σας την κατασκευει βήμα-προς-βήμα και την ανάσταση του ηχείου του παρελθόντος, και να εμπνευστειτε για να φτιάξετε το δικό σας εκπληκτικό έργο DIY.

Heavy due to the old speaker and amp inside, it was tremendously difficult to load into the car.

Getting it home and seeing it in the full light of day, he noticed lots of scratches and cracks in the varnish.

It clearly hadn't functioned in a long time.

Oddly enough, however, the speaker controls in the drawer on top seemed to function.

At least the frequency range was still operable.

Turning it around, he saw that the back was completely exposed. The cabinet used to house a record player, but it was missing.

Understanding everything within it, he started to completely gut the entire unit.

You're history, History!

He did salvage some pieces of the unit.

The vintage light bulbs are especially cool.

Afterwards, he used a chemical stripper to remove all the old varnish.


"This was by far the most difficult part. That stuff is toxic and the tiniest splash on my skin burned like crazy. I had to put several coats to scrape everything off."

After stripping the piece of varnish, it was time to sand the whole unit down.

Later, he applied a coat of stain and several coats of polyurethane varnish.

He then went over it several times with a high-grit sandpaper and steel wool to smooth everything out.

Next, he took the drawer on top and gave it a new bottom, covering it in red felt.

"I used felt lined wood strips for the bottom and sides and glued them in place. Makes a perfect drawer for wine openers and utensils."

The result is truly something to behold.

Complete with a Don Draper wood cutout, this DIY project is certainly a rousing success!
