Not much more to add really - everyone has said it already!

EXCEPT:

a) is your volume going up to 11
b) are you putting any of these in?

Funny you should ask. I rebuild old radios and old tube amps. Once I get the time I have plans to make myself one of these for personal use. I think it would be sweet to incorporate an old radio dial and antique speaker cloth where the marquee is as well as throwing tubes in somewhere for show. I may save the tube idea for my antique radio console that I have ripped apart waiting for a touchscreen and TLC.

The new kit design is done and I have completed the first build this weekend. I decided to build one from the wood veneered top since I had worked on it so much. It is wrapped in Sapele veneer. I blended some different colored dye stains together until I got the tone I wanted. Then I sealed it with clear nitro lacquer. Three full cans of it actually. This stuff takes months to cure before you can start sanding it. Once it was ready I wet sanded it flat with 600 grit paper. Once it was flat and smooth, I went up through the grits, stopping at 2000. From there I buffed out the finish with rubbing compound and finishing paste.

Here are a few for shots of the inside and back. It was a quicky, I still need to wire the power switch and make the marquee light box.

Thanks guys!
Here is what the standard black laminate kits look like clued together, polished, and t-molding installed. This prototype is for sale, assembly and polishing at no extra cost. Kits are now available here.

Good work from the Master!
I am digging the finish you put on the wood grained one. I think that looks better than laminate.

Thanks buddy. Yes, I agree. I wanted to build one like that to show what can be done. I will be offering unfinished wood veneered top options soon.


How's the juke build coming? I saw you got the first skin on.

It's coming, slow but sure. I got the first skin on halfway. I ran out of glue, so I got to pick some up today before I can finish that step.

This looks awesome, but what do you typically plug them into for sound?  I thought the idea for jukebox systems were to have everything contained into the unit such as speakers etc.  Looks like you will need to run this into some kind of powered speaker cabinet.  Would be curious to see what the entire system looked like together.  I'd assume if you have some kind of surround sound system you would just plug up into that. Sorry if this sounds like a dumb post, but I was just curious.

Not a dumb question at all. It is just a "head unit". These are designed for bartops or other table top surface that may be available. I think most bars in the home or even mancaves will have some sort of entertainment system anyway. The small size of the speaker system that would fit in one of these jukes, if designed that way, wouldn't be loud enough in that environment. I have the one pictured sitting in my entertainment cabinet. It is nice to have a source with so much music.


If demand calls for it, I will design a base that has a speaker system in it, similar to the original I built in 2008. It will make the overall unit around 4 inches taller, which I think takes away from the look. But maybe that's just me.

What you mean to say is "what you can do." Or, can you explain to me why it is yours look like this, and mine look like this?



;)

Again, godlike work sir.

Holy sheepshit!  We might as well have Midway or Stern come on here and say "You guys suck!  This is how it's done."

This pretty much sums it up. I most certainly don't have the tools *or* the skills ( :'() to do this kind of craftsmanship. Well done, sir, well done.  :applaud:

I'd love to build a jukebox, but if I were to do so, I'd want it to have speakers included, with even the subwoofer inside. Well, if that would make sense to do it that way.

I still find myself coming back to this thread on a regular basis. I wanted one of these as soon as I saw the pics. Unfortunately, the timing of me having the extra cash and these still being made just didn't  line up. If anyone knows of any other options for something even half as pretty as this could they please send me in the right direction. I do not have the woodworking skills to pull this off alone.

Mountain hasn't been on here for a while... I did buy one of these kits for a buddy and it still looks and runs great. Thanks Mountain!

Yes, but he doesn't get the notification since he hasn't logged in and came back to this site. Maybe he is on social media somewhere
