Yellowheart Plinth Thorens TD160 MKI
I finished a couple of new plinths for my Thorens TD 160 MK1 turntable. My Thorens was still sitting in his original plinth, so it was about time I finished a couple new ones.
This one is made out of a large piece of Yellowheart with Black Walnut inlay, plinth dimensions are 80mm high and 28mm thick. I’ve raised the height a little, so I could fit in a 12mm MDF base plate.
The new plinth is heavy, dense and should improve sound (dampen vibration), as well as being a significant aesthetic improvement over the stock wood.
Finished it with 3 layers Barend Palm boat oil and 1 layer Barend Palm yacht varnish.
