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.
