Built this shop stereo out of a car stereo for a friend of mine. I built the carcass out of 1/2” oak plywood. I set it up with a bluetooth stereo to stream music or just use the radio or USB port. I also added a 12 volt power outlet so a cell phone could be charged at the same time. The speakers, handle, and emblems I got from the local wrecking yard.

Nice job.

I made one similar using a car radio that had a cassette player. Used a couple cheap K-mart speakers and I powered it with an old 12v power supply from back in my CB Radio days when we’d use mobile units in the house.
Pretty sure I gave it away on one of our (many) moves.

It’s a very nice piece of equipment. Nice work. Let the music roll.

Super cool idea. I had thought of building one, just never did.
