'Haçienda' Music Cabinet
Designed and hand built in the Scout & Boo workshop, this lovely cabinet was initially designed as a commission piece to store a clients hi-fi equipment and vinyl (records/LP’s).
We wouldn’t want to limit the possible uses for this versatile little unit, but for the sake of it’s name, we’ll concentrate on it’s conceived use and let you decide what you want to do with it!
The top of this piece is large enough for a turntable measuring 50cm wide x 42cm deep (max size of top), two lower apertures underneath intended to house separates (amp, tuner or CD); top space measuring 47cm wide x 41cm deep and 9cm high between the birch ply, and the lower aperture between the steel spacers measuring 42cm wide x 41cm deep x 9cm high (NB: 42cm is the maximium width between the spacers looking from the front, 41cm is the full cabinet depth available if you slide the separate between the spacers from the front or back. If you slide from the side should your tuner/amp be wider than it is deep then you can fit a separate 32cm deep x 50cm wide x 9cm deep). Sliding doors open to a lower cupboard internally measuring 47cm wide x 37cm high x 42cm deep, with central partition and enough space to store 80+ 12” records – easily enough tunes for a good night in!
The yellow and black chevron design is inspired by Manchester’s iconic Haçienda nightclub designed by Ben Kelly, who utilised an industrial aesthetic to create a space that is still emulated to this day.
This all sits on top of some beech tapered retro dansette style legs which are 25cm high.

Looking after your furniture
The vinyl surfaces should be treated like a painted or varnished surface and cleaned with a soft cloth. Stubborn marks can be removed using a damp cloth or furniture polish (or even white spirits if it is really stubborn) and wiped dry. As with paint and varnish, the laminate can scratch so avoid heavy or sharp objects.
