    Very attractive design. Pretty simple to copy too. Should be able to knock one out for less than a ton.

    I feel a New Year project coming on.

    'Tis laughably over priced though.

    Pretty rack, not sure about glass. £800 sounds alot. In the context of designer furniture - peanuts. Check out the link for some serious pricing (and discount - got to wonder about margins!)

    Hardly simple. How are you going to join the glass shelves to the wood cheeks ?

    All those little bespoke metal inserts, toughend glass, solid walnut cheeks, modular design etc. I think the price is actually pretty fair.

    For anyone in Edinburgh that want a closer look at one of these, we have one of these on display in the store, albeit without the isolation platforms.

    The one we have on display is the 4 shelf Milan Hi-Fi in Walnut with clear glass shelves as shown below. This retails at £509.





    We also have a pair of the matching speaker stands, the SQ404,on display. Similar to the model below but with clear glass base plates.

    Nice, absolutely nice. It would fit under my apparatus.. But the price is ''little'' to much for me. Sometimes it's nice to live in the dreamworld, but some day i will return!

    Strange looking rack, not sure what I think about the design. Maybe a bit over designed?

    On thing is for certain,it's going to be one soab to dust with that double glass shelving.

    (imho) If we are talking getting near to 1k on a rack. Spend a little more than that on apre owned Finite Elemente Signature rack withsome Cerabase feet and have something with understated beauty that will never be 'out of fashion' or look 'over the top' in any setting. I just managed to blag one for a great price and they really are beautuiful looking racks that you will never grow tired of looking at.

    Recently had Custom Designs build me some stands for my speakers.
    Couldn't fault the quality of their work or service.
    Very nice looking rack.

    less than a ton? maybe of you made it out of MDF and plastic.

    I've just got a price for a single shelf of 10mm toughened glass at £38, this rack has got EIGHT of them.

    So if either of you can tell me where i can get my shelf done for £6 which is what you would need to pay to make this for under £100 i would be eternally grateful.

    but i doubt very much if you can, so what "tis laughable" is you two thinking you could make the same rack for under £100.
    If you're too lazy/stupid to Google it for yourself, why on earth would you expect me to do it for you.

    Who said anything about eight shelves of 10mm toughened glass ? Oh, wait a minute, you did

    I certainly wouldn't use glass on glass for a start. Way too much glass. I'd use painted mdf for the inner shelves resting on something lossy, like squash balls.

    For the four main shelves 10mm is way over specified. For my purposes 6mm would be fine. Might even use clear acrylic, which would be better all round from an anti vibration standpoint.

    Mmmm, I think I've talked myself into making one. I'll let you know how I get on.

    Thank you for your valued and intelligent comments, keep 'em coming.
