Introduction: Steampunk Ipod/Lamp Box

Old clock box and horn from thrift store and a few extras, added a light to it as well enough just to make a room comfy  , had to put a shade in front of it as it was to bright. Quickly made to see how it would turn out, with a few mods and some work it looks not bad for a start, will prob remove the bracket hanging over the edge on the top left and add an Ipod holder somewhere?
Sounded pretty good with a little speaker with a  make shift funnel going into the tube inside the box.
Still working on this, just figured I'd share and see if any one had any ideas for me, thanks.

This is a great looking start for a very unique Steampunk work of art!

I would suggest that with better photos and description, this would likely garner many more views. I would suggest photographing it in a less distracting background, like in front of a wall or resting a dark cloth. And adding a bit more detail, i.e. how it works.

(I would suggest switching the lead photo photo with the 9th photo in this series, as that photo is a better close-up with less background, and the 1st photo is the one that is used to promote your project).

You might also want to consider replacing the power cable with a more vintage looking cloth covered cable. You can buy this type of cable pre-made, or make your own with a shoelace or paracord.

Looking forward to seeing an expanded version of this Instructable!;-)

does the sound go through the horn?

Hello and yes the sound goes through the horn. I just plug in a speaker(small one) in the Ipod head phone jack and place it inside the box near the opening of the tube I solder to the box and horn.
