It was a joke for Rega fans i.e. he'd build a TT with a plant using a Pro-ject or Music Hall tonearm, but NOT a Rega.
Joel is actually most known for the simple Rega based "Barkey" which he sometimes keeps in stock as he tends to make these in small batches :
or using a exotic piece of lumber and various innards for a one of kind deck:
I'm not sure solid wood is a good option for a TT plinth, but his Rega plinths are veneered plywood, which makes more sense to me:
