Introduction: Steampunk Speaker Box - My First Instructable

I know it's really not steampunk enough for some, but i really liked the box as it was so I did not paint it. I like the rustic feel it has. I have four dollars in this project because I had the box and wood pieces, the handles, the neoprene (for sound) and the speakers. I paid the 4 dollars for the brass shower drain covers at our local Habitat for Humanity store.

The sound is extremely good especially when the door is closed. Its much better than I had hoped for.
The speakers were dismantled from 2 pair of Dell Computer speakers, I am using both mini amps from a single power source (the original transformer from Dell). I later added my cell phone charger under the shelf as an added bonus. Thanks for viewing.

Great job, now you got me thinking about using a similar case for a monitor and key board.
Glad you posted all the pics it looks like there was a fair amount of work there.

Pretty awesome project and having such a nice box helps definitely. The use of the shower drains as covers is A+ and I am sure I'll borrow this idea for one of my own Steampunk projects :)
Had to raise your average rating a bit.
