The DJ booth project started with my turntables and mixer, since one turntable was black and the other silver.
I wanted them to match. So I ordered some covers from 1200plates.com and an adhesive sticker for the mixer from 12inchskinz.com.
And I always wanted to integrate the equipment into the Expedit, so I prepared a drawing in Autocad and had a company cut out the top plate.
The rest I cut out myself, and did all the assembly. All the sides and front parts were made so that the top of the top plate would align with the top of the turntables.
After the assembly, I spent a lot of time on sanding all edges and adding filler, which also required a lot of sanding. And finally I put on two coats of floor painting.
The small lid on the right side is for a small storage space I made for extra cartridges etc. This is hinged to the rest.

I have a reasonable amount of equipment however I was keen not to allow the unit to overpower the room as this was to be built in my study which already had an IKEA hack to form a large office desk and storage. I was also very keen not to end up with just a big square (ugly(?)) box and wanted to maintain a “lightness” of the finished design. See it here.
