Ares Record Cabinet Black with Sliding Doors
This superb retro style record cabinet was originally made for Greg Hoy & The Boys lead singer Greg in California (See them on YouTube) and since then I have spent time to reduce CARBON by using more eco friendly materials.
The unit is finished using Eco paint in black satin Blackjack from Frenchic with matt black sliding doors featuring a vinyl disc design detail. Frenchic is a Low VOC paint made in the UK, that does not give off any harmfull fumes.
The cabinet is made from 18mm EcoBoard and features;
*Solid 27mm dark stained Oak top
*Heavy duty Aluminium sliding door track and runners
*Solid Beech wood tapered 20mm legs
*UK made metal leg anchor plates
*Solid metal recessed door grips
The Ecoboards are cut, jointed, screw and glued for strength. The unit will be painted on the doors, underneath and sides, but left natural inside. 6mm Beachwood ply back.
The solid oak top, which is protected with 7 coats of natural Danish oil, 2-3 hours drying between each, is polished to enhance its natural beauty. 40mm Stave width.
The doors have a futuristic matt black disc design feature which sets this apart from anything found on the high street. This record sleeve motif repeats across the face using the highest quality matt black vinyls. The door have adjustable sliders which slide upon solid aluminium track. Fitted with steel recessed door grips.
Another quality feature is the solid Beachwood tapered 20cm legs, which have been made in the UK. These are also treated with danish oil, come packed separately inside and simply screw onto the ready mounted plates underneath.
The unit measures 45cm deep and stands 62cm high (42cm is the cabinet height only). it should have an internal height of 38cm.
RECYCLED CONTENT- This cabinet uses oak boards made from reclaimed offcuts (staves) and my offcuts of these are used for the bottom skirt. MDF board contains recycled timber sawdust compressed with wax or resin.
DELIVERY- prices are based on the 160cm cabinet weight of 65kg, so larger models delivered outside mainland UK may cost more than advertised due to the Volumetric weight (cubic dimensions). There maybe a discount code for smaller sizes but contact me first.

Frequently Asked Questions
Custom and personalised orders
I am always receiving requests for customised work so I do welcome a challenge 😀 If you would like something made to your specs then just ask, i would love to see your idea.
Commonly people ask for shelves, bookcases or cabinets to be a little larger, in a special colour, unpainted or with different accessories.
Custom orders usually take a little longer to make and cost a little extra so please ask for a quote.
Sizes are quoted in metric, usually cm.
Where sizes are referred to as small, medium and large it would be the medium or regular size that is most popular or commonly purchased.
Sometimes we have to limit the size of larger items to 115cm in length due to the cost of delivery, especially when it is to be sent outside the UK. If you would like an item made larger than this we would have to confirm the delivery cost for you.
Allow a slight variation in sizes of recycled timber crafts due to the nature and availability of wood used.
The shipping price seems a little high, why is that?
Cost of delivery is calculated on the parcels volumetric weight, which is its measurements multiplied together divided by 5000. Large parcel will then have a much higher cost compared to smaller ones.
Also, the price includes the cost of the high quality recycled packaging that I use to avoid damaged items.
We can offer discounts for shipping when you buy more than one item as often the volume can be condensed by packing then together.
