Cavicchio Jukebox - Finally Done !

Hello & Happy Holidays!

Well I finally finished my 1st Jukebox project !

The entire cabinet was hand made by myself. (150+ photos). Since this wasn't a kit, the plastic arch had to be hand formed by myself from sheets of white polycarb. Black Plexi covers the enitre cabinet front.

Dimensions are approx. 32" H x 20" W x 13" D (inches).

I utilized an older P4-3ghz Processor, 1Gig ram, 256mb AGP card, 300 watt power supply running Windows XP.

Created all the graphics using a trial version of Photoshop CS4.

I'm sure we all recognize the software.  ;D

17" ELO Touchscreen purchased used on Ebay.

Audio is a standard 2.1 computer speaker set-up. I think it's 18W sub + 3W per channel. (pretty loud for home use)
Master volume & bass controls on back panel.

Since I didn't have access to a vacuum press, and I'm a newbie with veneer, it took 2 attempts to get the veneer wrinkle & bubble free.

As you can see, I kept the design of a Wurlitzer 1015 in mind.  Sorry no bubbles tubes, maybe next time. 

A special thanks to all those members who took the time to answer my endless stream of questions. It surely helped.

Enjoy the pics !

Barry B. Your software is wonderful...

Happy Holidays!

Here's the build... Please wait for pics to load...
Thanks!





























$1.99 Gutter Guard Screen for venting.









My 2nd piece of veneer.  :(      I guess you could say the first piece was a test...
Did you know that most wood veneer is only 1/42 of an inch thick?





I found these 50% off after Christmas @ Lowes last year. I just removed the outer lightbulb shaped plastic to make them fit. Alot cheaper than a custom programmable controller. (maybe down the road I'll upgrade)


Cavicchio Jukebox - Lighting Demo










Forgot to take a photo of the speakers before I disassembled them. So I included the mfg. photo.
I actually cut down the height of the left & right speakers.
Removed the volume/bass control from the speaker's base and made a new holder that I'll be relocating in the back.























The flashlight originally ran on (3)1.5 volt batteries or a total of 4.5 volts.
By inserting a 15ohm resistor, I was able to power the front emblem directly from the 5VDC tap coming from computer's power supply.




That Chinese flashlight put up one good fight.
Where else can you buy 9 white Leds & 3 AAA batteries for $2.00 ?









Motherboard stand-offs were recycled from discarded PC's.

that is one good looking project! Nice work! One thing I will say, the hard drive should have some kind of rubber dampers conecting it to your mounting brackets...vibrations from the speaker system could make it defect quicker...

Hello,

Good point...
Maybe some soft rubber material(washers) between the HD and the cabinet will help.
Thanks!

Nice Work!  I love the little subtle detail things you did to make the project stand out.   ;D

Dude, you really should get the full version. It will compliment your allready awesome cab.
I still can't get around how good thought out and innevative your cabinet is.

that cab would look great with a small lcd under the main screen (for those who use videos too that is...) I agree with coffee, that's gotta be one of the best home made cabs I've ever seen!
