Ok, so this round I had a few ideas: wallpapering the entry way ceiling & tiling a herringbone pattern on the floor in there were a couple of contenders, but ultimately I chose a smaller scale project...a wooden iphone/ipod amplifier. The thing doesn't use electricity. The sound from the iphone's built-in speakers gets sent through channels in the wood, & out through holes. The concept is kind of like how sound gets amplified through the hollow inside of a guitar/violin/etc. Neato.
Here's the final product...in the place I think we'll use it second most...the loo. (Once summer hits I'm positive we'll use it on the porch daily.)
It's pretty, completely portable (no need for an outlet) - & best of all it WORKS!
The thing was pretty simple & straightforward to make, but you do need some "more than basic" tools to do it. Luckily I know someone who has a huge workshop that's the envy of the neighborhood - thanks dad! :) Let's get to the pics...
That's my dad...he's always willing to help me out with my crazy projects...he's the best.
I can't wait to get home from work & jam. ;)
