    Timbernation Rules

    Got my second gorgeous rack from Chris Futrick of Timbernation in Tiger Maple and Walnut and it is stunning. As soon as I get posting privileges I will post some pics. Very very heavy so I do not recommend dropping shelves on toe. I broke two of them but the rack is still worth it.

    I'll fix your posting when I get home.

    And YES - Timbernation rules. I have ALL Timbernation racks and amp stands. Chris is a no BS kind of guy who builds rock solid racks.

    Re: Timbernation Rules

    Is there any particular isolation used other than the wood itself?

    Rob, I'm guessing these pics are self explanatory. I so wanted to import this product into Australia but he wouldn't reply to my many emails.

    Re: Timbernation Rules

    Yes I used Cerapucs under the feet of the rack as well I will be using Stillpoint Ultras under certain phonostages and a Symposium Svelte Plus under turntable. Talk about overkill. The Cerapucs are very well made same ceramic ball and cup type of isolation device. I installed threaded adapters into the walnut legs to take the threaded screws for the Cerapucs.
    now to move all the arms and the Turntable over. the RX-5000 will go on the existing rack with four arms.

    Re: Timbernation Rules

    Chris indeed is one cool dude. I drew up this:





    And he sent me this:







    It totals 450 total pounds of Walnut. Huge 3" thick solid platforms and burl inlays. I think its purdy.
