Victorian Speakers

Picture of Victorian Speakers
These are speakers I designed and made for my design technology class. See my design website here to look at my full research process:

The task for this unit is to design a set of designer speakers that will be specific to a certain client's needs, while exploring the appeal of designer products. 

Brief: I will design a speaker for an audiophile who seeks maximum quality sound and a great design. It will be used at a home study and will radiate a cross between a victorian and modern look that is of high sound and material quality. For maximum sound quality and good design, it should be a set of stereo speakers inside one speaker enclosure, and easily portable and designed for laptop and smartphone use.

** Quick notes:
1) I'd advise you to read through all my steps before starting because being a novice, I mess up in a lot of places and I'll give you tips on how to avoid these messups in later steps.
2) I'm a student, so if you're very familiar with design, don't expect this tutorial to be to your level. I'm a novice, and I'm very unfamiliar with all the tools available. If you're in that position, then this is perfect for you. :)

If I win the Hurricane Laser competition, that will be even more amazing! I'll be able to use it to cut many other designs, and use it for engraving and personalising products!

Step 1: Draw out the final design to scale

This is necessary to plan the measurements and materials needed.

Here's a picture of my design, and the second is the one with measurements (ignore the horns, they were too time-consuming and thus left out)

The material I decided to use was pine wood, which I will later on lacquer/ paint.
