Wood isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you’re out looking for electronics at say, Best Buy. But if you check elsewhere, there are quite a lot of gizmos made with wood. Remember the wooden iPhone/iPad docking station, e5 wood earphones, wooden iPhone amplifier, and bamboo keyboard and mouse? Well, bamboo is technically a grass but you know what I mean. All the above are just scratching the surface in the wooden electronics dimension. Another item we’d like to throw in there is this beautiful Barky Turntable.
A pitch-perfect piece of nature, this smooth slice of ashwood is outfitted with a Premotech motor and a Rega tonearm, a weighty glass platter and adjustable spike legs. By Audiowood. Wood, glass
- 5″H, 15″W, 15″D
- Handmade in USA
This contemporary piece of audio art might make you want to forget about your mp3′s. The design is so simple but the concept is totally original. Definitely one-of-a-kind, the cross-section cut of the ashwood tree trunk can reveal the tree’s age. It could be older than your Fleetwood Mac LPs.
The Barky Turntable can be found at Anthropologie for $1,298.
