You can change size, fabric, shape,... pictures of your own work are welcome!
SAFETY ADVICE: This instructable uses sharp tools. Be careful using them. If you are not sure how to use, don't continue. For kids, it is mandatory adult supervision.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Thick cardboard
- Decorated paper
- 2 or 4 screws with nut and washer
- 4 nails or wood stick
And the following tools:
- Pencil or marker
- Cutting mat
- Soldering iron and solder (if needed)
- Screwdriver or crescent wrench (for screws)
- Scissors and awl (not in picture)
Step 2: Cutting Cardboard
Measures are calculated for a driver with 10 cm of external diameter and 0.8 cm of cardboard thickness. Adjust them to yours.
Notice that right section is narrow: it will overlap left section, so two layers of cardboard will hold the driver.
Fold by dotted lines. Help scoring with cutter and making pressure with scissors.
Next cut a circle in the centre of the left section and try the driver into. Once it works fine, mark the holes you need. Now mount the body and mark the circle and holes in the right section.
Step 3: Mounting Driver
Step 4: Making Fabric Frame
Now put the fabric on (you can use any piece of fabric remaining), cut to fit size and then staple it, always starting from the middle to the corners.
If you are using a sheer sock (lycra) like me -that I think is very similar to professional speakers- be careful with nails and staples. Also, I recommend you to paint nails with a similar colour. Notice I'm using the sock as is, so two layers of fabric will be opaque.
SAFETY ADVICE: Do not use nails if children at home can catch up with. Change it by wood sticks or somehing soft that holds frame on speaker body.
Step 5: Decorating and Finishing
