What was your inspiration?
My customer asked me to make a vintage record player - the old type that had a removable lid. I thought it would add a nice touch to make the record label his "happy birthday" message.
What are you most proud of?
I really like the detail on the player with the knobs and the "arm" of the player.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This project is easier than it looks. The most difficult aspect is the "arm" of the player. I used a straw and wrapped it with fondant so that the arms stayed nice and stiff. Make the arm a couple days in advance so it has plenty of time to dry.
