how to make a record player?

this kind? wha should i do? im new so im not really sure.how would i make the top part? and how do i make a boom box?

how do i combine a normal circle to a 3d cube?

here is a record player I modeled in about ten minutes. Not as hard as it seems. You just need to learn some good modeling techniques and practice. Blendercookie.com has a lot of really good modeling tutorials.

Wow! Can you give some general notes on how you did this?

This is one of the most informative modeling tutorials I’ve seen.

Search for skygoat posts, just today I had to figure out similar and posted it…

<SHIFT>-RMB to select all meshes
<CTRL>-J to join
<SHIFT>-<VERTEX> to select the edges you want to join
f to create the face that joins the edges you just selected

Top part do a 10 sided cylinder and extrude then taper (scale) the ends. You can get the flower look by pushing vertices back at the top.
