Videoinstructions:

Step 1: Sketch

First i sketched up my parts in Easel the i chose to have my geometry cut on the outside of my geometry, i setup the cutting deep and choose what drillbit to use, i got a 1/8 inch cut bit and a v-groove bit to chamfer the edges.

Step 2: Milling

I made sure the wood was fixed and hade no chance of moving, and then just picked my origo and started to mill. I milled holes on top of the boombox and 3D-printed buttons for the bluetoothmodule.

Step 3: Break Edges

I bought some cheap putty and spraycans and clearcoat and applied 4-5 times to make the finnish look better.

Step 6: Assembly

Assamble and tight the speakers to the front. Put the front on something soft to avoid scratches in the coating.

Step 7: Assamble the Electrics

With all tools you used for it, it isnt really cheap, but on the other hand you can do almost same thing without 3d printer and mill, which is good

Yes you are right, only your imagination sets the limit how it can be built! :) im a part of a maker-organisation so i only pay 10 dollars a year to use the machines.
