    Nice. I made an armboard for a Denon DP72L out of Corian, by happenstance really, but it was great to work with and looks good also.

    must be a dynamically balanced arm... even plays upside-down.

    ;-)

    In all seriousness; sounds like (and looks like) a nice base. The SP-15 is a nice piece of hardware.
    all the best,

    For some reason, pictures turn upside down on my Ipad, they are right side up when I upload....

    Perhaps Apple's sourcing parts from south of the Equator? ;-)

    So is this a wood base you made? Any better pictures?

    The really interesting part is that when I look at this thread on my iPhone, the picture is right side up. But when I look at it on a browser on my PC, it is upside down.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    In all seriousness (this time) - since the intrinsic quality of the photo should be fine from an iPad, if you have one set up, you might want to invest the extra effort to upload your photo to a hosting service (Picassa/Google, Flikr, Photobucket, etc.) and hotlink that image. That should work -- or if worse comes to worst, the photo-hosting sites usually have provisions to rotate an image if it's not "right".

    Looks good!
