Bluetooth Speaker Enclosure

I have been waiting three days for the danish oil, so that I could assemble this. Now I can post the results.

About $10 in parts for the speakers, wires, and bluetooth module.

The wood is PureBond Columbia Forest plywood (maybe Red Oak???).

I had done a design earlier in Adobe Illustrator for thicker wood and had been avoid doing it again for thinner wood. So last weekend I spent some time using Cuttle to convert my design.


(thanks @forresto for the isometric visualization)

Once I converted it was easy to resize for the wood.

I like that you used single large tabs for the box that adds to the look of the project. Where did you find the electronics?

I extended the front tab so that I could change out the frame.

These two are the HD reversible whiteboard/chalkboard

I thought it was going to be really slick, but I didn’t think it through.You can see the speaker cloth.

Now what is the difference between the Danish oil you ordered vs say something bought at Lowes/local hardware store?

I ordered five different modules. This one was the easiest to work with.

5volt Bluetooth Module

The speakers I had on hand. But these are the same size.
4ohm 3watt speakers

I tested it on the table and these sound pretty bad, but once I got them into the enclosure they are way better. I tried to upload a video of it playing and it was flagged for copyright (Ramones). I am not an audio person, so I am not a great judge. MP3, CD, Flac, AAC, WAV all sound the same to me.

Ha ha. It took three days to cure.
