Wood iPhone Boombox Gets Birthed by Shopbot
February 21st, 2012
Are you tired of looking for that perfect iPhone boombox? Are you sick of those cheap looking plastic ones in every store? Take a look at this minimal wooden boombox.
This boombox was created by Instructables user MTriest using MDF wood and a layer of clear acrylic sandwiched in-between as its primary construction materials. The design was created for a production class using a ShopBot CNC router as well as a laser cutter. The design can be easily modified to work with other cell phones and tablets, but it looks pretty nice on an iPhone as shown – though I wish it had stereo sound.
The step-by-step build process is described in detail over at Instructables and MTriest proposes ways of modifying his design so that almost anyone could build this at home without need for those fancy computer-controlled tools.
