I’m not exactly sure how I came across these modified $3 speakers, but the video has inspired me to order some parts to work on a similar project of my own!
He does a good job showing how much of a difference a good enclosure makes, and his beautiful wood enclosure immediately made me think of the Bose Wave Radio. I guess they aren’t marketed as radios anymore, but the curving chamber of this wooden enclosure is quite similar!
This seems like a fantastic project for my Shapeoko CNC machine, so I ordered a Bluetooth board with an amplifier and a pair of speakers from Banggood. Do you think I can manage to model a parametric speaker enclosure in OpenSCAD? I hope I can!
I have a feeling that the video about the wooden speaker enclosure was what led me to discover the Mitre Lock router bit. I watched several reviews, but Wes Hamstra’s was my favorite.
When you cut two pieces of wood at a 45-degree angle and attach them together, that is called a miter joint. The Mitre Lock router bit makes a cut similar to a miter, but you wind up with an edge with an interesting shape. If you run each piece to be joined over your router table from opposite orientations, you will end up with a miter joint that locks together: a miter lock?!
I didn’t expect these bits to be so inexpensive. They seem to be available with Prime shipping from Amazon for between $11 and $21 per bit. The size I would be most likely to use is only $15.

I can’t help it. I keep clicking on videos from DIY Perks. His recent video where he makes high-performance acoustic panels from scratch is no exception.
I’m in the planning stages of a large project right now. I’m going to be converting our two-car garage into a combination home office, recording studio, and workshop. There’s even more echo out there than in my current home office, so I will need something to absorb all the reverberation out there!
These panels would work nicely, and they look great. I’ll probably go with a different shape, but I really like his work and his idea!
