It’s funny how these days people seem to be trying to take our modern technology and make it old fashioned in style. We have rotary phones with iPhone jacks, wooden computer keyboards, even typewriters that you connect to your iPad! Though i love all these things, they do end up being pricey (it’s expensive making the new old!) Though as Ceci points out you won’t be chucking out your Bose sound system with this gramaphone, it’s so sweet and fun and it looks great! Plus it’s not that expensive to make (though you do need a good drill). I know my Dad would love this - but he has the drill… hmm.
