Make a set of floor standing speakers with it!
Intermediate - advanced woodworking
Assorted wood screws - #6 or #8
Drill & bits
Step 1: Layout materials
Match wood grains if possible.
Stagger the pieces to give the joints more strength.
Step 2: Glue pieces together
Set them aside to dry.
Stack them on a flat level surface.
Step 3: Remove flooring nails
Step 4: Cut to size
(Speaker components will vary, so measure twice cut once)
Step 5: Choose a wood joining method
I went with a dado wood joint.
It was the least time consuming, and stronger than a lap joint.
Apply the joints to the edges.
Step 6: Determine speaker configuration
Here I'm using a tmm setup. (Tweeter/Mid/Mid)
Step 7: Cutting holes for speaker mounting
I scored an open box plunge router for $30 bucks.
The circle template I had to make.
Find a scrap piece of clear acrylic.
Copy hole set of the plastic base plate onto the scrap piece of acrylic.
Drill out holes.
Temporarily mount the template (Scrap acrylic piece) onto a working surface
Using a compass and a ruler, mark your lengths from the center point of the router.
(This will be the center of your router.)
Drill location holes at the marked length... this will be the pivoting/spinning point for the router
Mount the new acrylic template onto the router.
Cut a test piece.
The pivot/spinning hole rests in a screw placed in the center of your workpiece
As you are cutting all the way through, be sure to have scrap material to raise your piece so you don't cut into your bench
