DIY Isolation Table : aka Sandbox


This was my first attempt at building an isolation platform - sandbox.

  

Design layed out before stepping into the garage to start.

  

3/4" MDF cut and then final assembly .

  

Painted with Krylon Semi-Flat black and then weathered stone finish.
Topped off with six coats of semi-gloss Deft.

     

Here is the pebble finish. The color was black sand. Then the final coats with Deft.
The glass beads are size number 10 and came in a 50 pound bag. I used about half the bag.

  

Here is the finished platform filled with glass bead media used in bead blasting.
Finer than sand, white
and covered with a piece of 1/2" glass.
The hardest part was getting the "sand" absolutely level.
Instant difference in the sound quality from the Rega.
The rumble that I had been experiencing since
installation of the high output Audio Note cart is gone.
