Garrard 301 Plinth Building Part 2

The 301 is coming along great. Kenny did a superb job cutting the boards and helping with design. I spent Friday and Saturday gluing it together. Today I spent alot of time sanding. Lots of sanding. Could have used a belt sander.
 I used transformers for extra weight the heavy one is 700v 300ma. That is for a project down the road.. What stereo amp should I build with that? Enough for a Brook 12 clone?
 It did it in sections of three. Then did the 3 larger sections last.
One of my smart ass friends "huffer" left this on a scrap of wood I didn't find until I went looking for scraps. 
 I'm done sanding. Looks great. 
I'm thinking about Walnut veneer.
The 13ply is great!!
TOTAL WEIGHT 48.2 LBS
Could I wait for veneer..... Just had to give it a spin. Going to make some minor changes like adding a solid walnut tonearm mount.

Yes it is a little fast. I lost my magnets that I added to eddy break to get speed spot on.... Dang it.

Thanks again Kenny couldn't have gotten this far without your help.
