Nice use of the block. How does it sound?

It sounds pretty good, its a little bright but I think the key is to have a completely round port and to get it off the table a bit to reduce reflection. I have made about a dozen different styles with different types of wood and port sizes and they all sound a little bit different.

Please explain “completely round port.” Do you mean where the phone is sitting or where the sound is emitting from under the board?

Dale, If you look at the ports they are about 2/3’s of a full circle and the sound reflects off whatever surface it is sitting on. With a round port there is a gap between the bottom edge of the port and the surface it is sitting on (about an inch or so) which lets the sound project before it reflects (giving it a little more bottom end)
I will be posting a few of the others later in the week.
Thanks for looking
T.

Nice and simple design. I wonder if you would place a thin piece of wood on the bottom if that would help the sound? Either way, it sure is a nice project! Thanks for sharing….
