For Christmas, I made my son a custom bluetooth speaker. The case is made from Walnut and the front is a piece of Curapay that I found while digging through the cutoffs at the local lumber yard. It measures about 20” x 6” x 6”. I’ve seen the bluetooth kits at Rockler, but the sound quality is questionable. For this project, I used Dayton Electronic components including a 2×30watt amplifier.

Finished with wipe-on polyurethane and a couple of coats of paste wax.

The parts I used can be found on Amazon:
2×30 watt Bluetooth Amplifier – http://amzn.to/2DfajIw
Cable Kit – http://amzn.to/2zxzS5x
4” Drivers – http://amzn.to/2CbHU9g
Port Tubes – http://amzn.to/2CaPBwz
Back dish – http://amzn.to/2BUohmO

This was a really fun project and sounds great. It was the first present opened and we used it to play Christmas music all day.

My next project is going to use rechargeable batteries using the extension board – http://amzn.to/2DguB4h

Thanks for looking.

How’s it sound?

I’ve done two of these now and they can really kick out the jams…

This is a really good way to show off a unique piece of wood. I regularly visit the lumber yard to dig through the stuff that other people don’t want and find some real treasures.

This one sounds OK. I just tore apart a couple of vintage Bose speakers to use the drivers for my next project.
