Table Top Vinyl Coasters

A miniaturized phonograph for coffee tables (roughly 6" x 6" x 2.5" tall). It features a rotating volume knob, a swiveling arm and nine vinyl records. Each record serves as a coaster for drinks. Beneath the turntable, hides a stack of redrawn reproductions of some of the best vinyl ever recorded, and each is the perfect size for holding your drink.
