I think you should go into business. I can imagine it now...

"Derma's House of Cradles; hand-built luxury for the things that spit out cool beats and not vomit"

I think it's quite catchy. :P

haha that'll look great on a business card :)

actually my wife suggested i should make a few of these and other designs for sale.

my next project is gonna a simlar cradle for my jomox m-base01 and then some wood end pieces for my jx3p, and maybe for my LP stage edition too. wood just looks so much nicer on synths, than plastic :)

i'll be sure to post pix of those as soon as they're done too :)

Definitely; I was thing about doing the same with the Ion. Mahogany ends; then again that'd take away from the "futuristic" look.

Looks great, Derma!

I like red oak, too, and have used it for amp cabs. Stained blue, of course! :D

Thats very nice, I'm using a bookstand to support me rm1x but this looks much better, almost like one of the old analogue synths

It really looks great like that! by function or aesthetically. It's a bit suprising that such a modern looking drum machine, looking fantastic with a touch of woods. Also, the wood type and color selection really fit well with the synth. great work!

Nice work, it looks very neatly done, altho; and please don't take this as a criticism cos it's not.

I like the industrial look of my MD and i think nice wood panels would severely soften that.
