The charm of a cassette tape has melted over the years in this world of compact discs. You will hardly spot people using cassette tapes, which meant rewinding a song and changing sides from A to B. Just imagine how will you tell future generations what fun came tagged along a tape? If you have already started getting nostalgic and emotional, then here to pamper this side of yours is a coffee table that has been crafted like a tape.
Christened the Mixtape Table, it looks like an outsized cassette and has been meticulously crafted by Seattle designer Jeff Shierka. This handcrafted 12:1 scaled imitation of the reel is bound to leave 80s children pretty emotional. The wooden table has been fashioned out of reclaimed maple and walnut wood, which will definitely rev up the decor of any music lover’s abode. The designer made sure that every detail was in place that is evident from the presence of four holes in the design that are used to hold the tape in position when put in the player. The table is topped by a 3/8” plexiglass, giving it a plastic look.
The fine work doesn’t end here, as the place where a label is placed is dug in, while in the center the clear window has been neatly cut out giving the table a very real appearance. Mixtape Table measures 47.25” x 30” x 5” and also has a side B. In case you get bored using the side A, then flip the table around for a different wood grain pattern and enjoy the reversible nature of this awesome wooden creation.
