Hi everybody, I recently got access to an Inventables CNC-mill so I decided to learn how to mill and make a DIY bluetoothspeaker that was light to bring and long batterytime

Step 1: Sketch
First i sketched up my parts in Easel the i chose to have my geometry cut on the outside of my geometry, i setup the cutting deep and choose what drillbit to use, i got a 1/8 inch cut bit and a v-groove bit to chamfer the edges.
Step 2: Milling
I made sure the wood was fixed and hade no chance of moving, and then just picked my origo and started to mill. I milled holes on top of the boombox and 3D-printed buttons for the bluetoothmodule.
Step 3: Break Edges
Remove sharp edges and sanding it.
Step 4: Glue
I used PVA glue to glue the box and clamped it together.
Step 5: Putty,sand and Paint It
I bought some cheap putty and spraycans and clearcoat and applied 4-5 times to make the finnish look better.
Step 6: Assembly
Assamble and tight the speakers to the front. Put the front on something soft to avoid scratches in the coating.
Step 7: Assamble the Electrics
Im sad to say i dont have many pictures from the electronic part, but i made a schematic and hope you understand how i made.
Step 8: Almost Done Now!
Glue and clamp the front to the box.
Step 9: You Are Done!
Just charge it,pair it with your phone and you should be good to party like there is no tomorrow!
Hope you have enjoyed my tutorial! :)
