"I've always loved gramophones for as long as I can remember, there's just something about that old school sound that never gets old! And so I was on the hunt for a nice gramophone for myself but realized that all the old gramophones either have to be cranked by hand or only play records, and so I thought I wonder if there's a way to use your cell phone with the gramophone? That's where it sort of hit me, why not try to make it? And after lots of trial and error, I came up with a way to recreate the old school gramophone, but made completely out of wood!
Each gramophone is completely made by hand, using local Canadian lumber or in the case of the colourful models, recycled skateboards. And because each model is made from scratch, you'll never have two the same, so your gramophone will always be unique and one of a kind!
