I saw a project posted the other day about a passive amplifier for your cell phone. I liked the idea and I’m always looking for small projects to use up the smaller scraps from other projects. It seems like I’ve got a constantly growing collection of boards that are too small to easily find a use for, but too big to feel good about getting rid of.
So when I saw the passive amplifiers, I immediately thought about my growing scrap pile and my wife and two daughters who are constantly all listening to music. So I made up these three pieces. The two for the girls are Mahogany tops with cherry bottoms and the one for my wife is Mahogany on both side. All three have baltic birch ply center panels.
The layers are all 3/4” thick and I made up a template for the centers so I could just pattern route them. The top layers have a 5/8” slot cut to fit an iPhone. The finish is just a couple of coats of satin lacquer.
This was a quick and easy project and they work surprisingly well. More importantly, the LOML and the kids think they are great.
