Funnel’n’roll…
really foolish blog!

Ok I said it!
No more talk, it’s your own fault if you did not click away.

Each time I went to my shop kitchen and saw the funnel in the drawer, I had that thought: funnel – phone.

Why blog this? Because I thought it would be a fun project, if bringing kids to the shop.


So a piece of ply.
Cut to size of the phone.


One of the cuts on an angle.


I used a piece of clear plastic to mark the placement of the phones speaker.
(Here you should add the deepness of the groove, I forgot).


Then drilling a hole where the speaker it is, on the support.


On the base make a series of cuts.


So you get a groove.
(Not a musical groove).


Glue the support to the base.


I put some screws from the base, just to make sure it will be strong enough.
(Actually made a mistake, so I had to cut the support to size after).


Mount the funnel on the support.


A piece of plastic hose are then connected to the funnel and through the speaker hole.
Finally the hose is cut so the phone are resting on it.


Funnel’n’roll…


Less is plenty…


Speaker looking at speaker…


Ready to rock.


Have to say the Funnel’n’roll lost the test against my Bose Soundlink II, big time, in fact the best I can say about it is, that it does amplify the music.
Not a speaker but enough for a small party, like two or three guests…


Ready.


Funnel’n’roll…


Music and wood working, what more can we ask for?

Hope it could inspire others, or perhaps not at all…

Why do I see a little dog sitting in front of this with his head cocked to one side?

Cool!

Maybe this is Genre specific? I think you should re-test with the soundlink :)

It’s so wonderful that you’ve taken a break from all the blacksmithery and finally shared something useful. Seriously. If I could be half as smart as you, why, I’d be about a quarter as smart as I was when I was a teenager. Here in LJs, I’m reminded yet again, that I’m rubbing elbows with giants. And here, we have one with a truly unbridled mind. Bravo all over you, Mads.

Hi,
Roger, It does, with jam on I don’t know… laughs.
Ron Aylor, Hand forged bulgarian axe head, for hiking purpose I made a lightweight handle. I have no plans… lol.
Kiefer, that you will have to explore, for several reasons, first for the joy, second for the reason that the speaker and mobile size are different from modet to model. But sure you can do that easy. ;-)
EricTwice, just there to please you. Hand forged bulgarian, for hiking purpose.
Mark Wilson, yes I am aware I have had a bad turn there… big smile, if I was only half of what I was as young, I would be doubble of what I am today… Laughs.
Tim Dahn, you might be right, not sure I can stand that… I did try with this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHE7I1MWbrc and that’s better.
papadan, laugh, I am retired. ;-)
shipwright, I did also see that dog!
Joe Lyddon, laugh, I get a bright idea.
madts, I don’t know how!
Lew, smiles thanks.
Thank you all for the comments and wonderful smiles on lips.
Best thoughts,
Mads

Mads, you need two funnels so as to have stereo. Big brass ones would look awesome!!!
