Here is a photo of my home studio rebuild.
There are more photos on my website as well as

great looking stuff.

and i've had my eye on your designs for a while. i have a carpenter friend who i trade mixing for his band for carpentry work and stuff (he also builds hand made tube amps, kind of how we met) and he's building my new desk loosely based on your corner shaped desk design (had to shrink it a bit to fit my room) i'll show you pics when it's done!

If you don't mind me asking, I have two questions for you.

1) What are the panels on the side wall made of?
2) How far out are they mounted, and how did you mount them?

I suppose that's actually 3 questions, begging your pardon.

Thanks!

I didn't realize you were awesome enough to have made an entire site.

Your designs are much simpler than the ones I've had running through my brain the last few months.

Genius!

I find the lava lamp crucial to the design.

FYI, been having some major recording problems and finally chased it down(I hope) to a bad Firewire Card in my Yamaha n12.
Sending it out for repair soon. :D

Do you have build instructions for the slanted rack? Looks great

Thanks StudioDog.
I do not have the plans for the rack.
Yet.
It has been something that I want to pursue though.
