How to: Make a Portable Stereo from an Old Toolbox

created at: 03/25/2013

Chicago-based artist and designer Artpentry, maker of the "Gentleman's Boombox" - a stereo/speaker combo built inside a vintage suitcase - turns his outfitting skills to another type of popular case: the toolbox.   Artpentry - aka Floyd A. Davis IV - shares the technique The Craftsman Experience, on which I've also appeared. (Good times!) He explains the process in the video below. It was shot live, so it's a little long, and not everything comes together perfectly, but you'll certainly get a taste of how to approach a project like this. Very cool to watch: 

 This would look awesome in an old secondhand toolbox with a nice patina.

Hold the stinking camera still. It seems like all of the DIY videos think a camera bouncing all around is what people want. All it doe is make a person dizzy.
