I started this small project because I needed a way to listen to my music in the shop. Because I’m cheap I didn’t want to use anything but scraps so it’s kind of a hodgepodge of walnut, maple and oak laminate together to get pieces big enough. everything was cut by hand and I’ve already dropped it twice so there are some decent sized marks on it but it survived so I guess that’s the idea of a shop radio.
The guts are a 3w amp, a bluetooth recover, and a 1 inch speaker. Total cost is about $6. Uses a phone charger for power but any USB would work. The Bluetooth range from my phone is about 10 feet. Its about twice as loud as my phone and much better quality.
