Our GF arrived two weeks ago. I thought I would share my first project.
This is an audio over Ethernet snake adapter. It is used to carry four channels of audio over a single Ethernet cable.
We have a recording studio in our home. This precipitates microphone and instrument cables running everywhere. To reduce some of the clutter and keep things more organized I have started a project of installing connection points at different locations in the live room. Audio cables are bulky and long cables are expensive. A great alternative is to use Ethernet cable which can carry four channels. It is much easier to run one inexpensive, thin Ethernet cable rather than four bulky expensive audio cables. All you need is a box on each end to break out the signals and give you the proper connectors.
I used one of the online box creation tools to get the basic design and added the cutouts on each end. What I wanted to share is the way I secured the bottoms of the boxes. I wanted to keep the bottom covers removable so that I could gain access without having to destroy the box.
For each side there are two thin strips glued together and then glued to the bottom cover. One has screw holes and the other has cutouts for nuts. When glued together it creates a place to mount the nuts and keep them from spinning when you put the screw in. The nuts are glued in place.
Thanks for looking.
