W-pod speaker
from recycle parts

This post is from the blog:

For a long time I have been using computer speakers as sound system at the workshop.
The speakers were playing really well, but they were as usual dead boring to look at and could need some more mass to make better sound.
Also I am a Lumberjerk so I needed a speaker that fitted this…

1. W-pod speaker in the new location and in good company.
2. Old computer speakers.
3. Old tabletop found in the trash.
4. Project becomes reality.
5. Glue time.
6. Party and pipe time.

Hope this post can bring some inspiration to others or even better bring some old computer speakers into a new life.

Best thoughts,

Very crafty. I’ll bet it rocks. Love your projects. When I saw the pipe, I knew to look at this one. Very intuitive.

Great looking speakers enclosures. Nice job of recycling. You must be from the old school. they teach all the young’uns now to dispose of everything and never look back! Good think there are Lumberjock people like you and many others to give the discarded stuff new life!!
Good job, my friend!!................Jim

I want to echo what CL810 said – I love this but I never would have thought of it on my own. I see ideas that I like and I can copy them, but to come up with this idea out of the ether is beyond my understanding. I am in awe of you Mafe, I am not embarassed to say.

Some foam inside would have allowed for less coloration and crosstalk of the sound, but anyway, it looks waaay better than the crap plastic cases :)
