this is our new door bell cover. I didnt like the cheap plastic cover that came with it, and didn’t really like many of the other looks so before replacing the old one I measured it out and tried making something that was a little more unique. I think it came out ok. I tried to cave a subtle heart in it to see if anyone would notice?

Thanks for the encouraging words. The project was fairly easy using the King Arthur Holey Galahad Sander on an angle grinder. most of my time was spent sanding after using the tool. The sound would have been improved by cutting slots or probably drilling small holes near the metal chine; however, I figured I would see how it worked without them and it sounds fine though it is a little muffled.

Have your say...
