  1. Dayton 3 Speaker Project

    I've always had a love for audio and woodworking so back in high school I decided to take advantage of both plus a soldering iron to build this "high end" pair on a budget. This particular speaker project is modeled after the "Dayton 3" project on Partsexpress.com. They are considered by many...
  2. Big Sound from Wood

    March, 2017-A friend liked an earlier model so he asked for two for his daughters. They both amplify the sound playing on a smartphone. That's an iPhone in the photos. The smaller amplifier is made of a piece of hardwood from a log that a friend dropped off. The larger one is pine. When it...
  3. Entertainment Center

    I had been using a couple of room dividers against a wall in the family room to house the television and some stereo equipment. The more I thought about it the more need I had for a 'proper' entertainment center. I researched the magazines and the internet to come up with a picture of...
  4. Cornhole Boards - Quiet, Silent

    Updated 1/11/19: we pulled out the insulation and filled the boards with concrete and put a 3/4" backer board underneath. We used green glue between the framing and the bottom backer board to help dampen vibration. They are about 1/2" higher than regulation, but they are SUPER quiet now...
  5. Mission Style Recording Studio Workstation

    I needed a bigger desk for my composing, so I decided on this design. It's solid hickory except for the legs, which are laminated plywood with a hickory veneer, and the top and keyboard plate which are hickory veneered plywood. The construction features pinned through tenons. The top is...

  7. real hi-fi Repro box

    I absolutly love the music and clear soudn but the price of comercial product with listenable quality is relativly high. So i find wery briliant sound designer who have plans for this kind of quality grade.
  8. iPhone Passive Amplifier (like the Koostik)

    I've seen a few designs of this now, and was very curious about building one. So, I grabbed some scrap walnut and made one. It changes the tone of the music slightly, but importantly, it amplifes the sound a little bit and projects outward. My son loves it and has used it non stop since I...
  9. Sound Booth

    I made this for the same company i did the Media Editing Table for. The exterior is 3/4" mdf covered in Nevamar laminate and the trim is Maple. I did a purposeful reveal at all 4 corners so the unit could be unscrewed and disassembled from the inside corner junctions in order to get it in the...
  10. My Home Theater Subwoofer

    This past year hasn't been real good to me, but I did manage to squeeze a few projects in. Here are the results. The plans came from here, http://sites.google.com/site/undefinition/swope-ht With a little knowledge and skill I think that anyone can build it…. I haven't built the rest of the...
  11. Fairy door

    I've seen a few of these here and enjoyed them very much. This was a quick little fun piece I tried, and now I think I have to do more. It's carved in white pine, painted with goauche for color and coated with boiled linseed oil. I was inspired by the fun ones here in the projects posted...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I recently added on a workshop off the back on the garage. I went ahead and made it a 2-story addition so that my son could have a new bedroom, too. Both of us are loving the new spaces. The only problem is…..the sound. After he goes to bed, I'd like to "retire" to the shop to knock out some...
  13. Scrollsawing
    Hey all, I'm about to invest in one of those small sheds to use as a workshop. I don't need a lot of space, I figure a lot of planing and what not can be done outside for the most part. My main concern is noise. Has anyone tried these sheds for a shop, and have any advice on sound proofing to...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello guys and gals. --- I am wanting to soundproof a shop vac and a table saw. The shop vac will be placed in a box, similar to other builds that people have done with acoustic panel to lower the dB amount by building a noise reduction box. The table saw will be done in a similar way. I plan...
  15. Focus on the Workspace
    Can you recommend a way to dampen vibration from my DC? It's vibrating the whole house. Details: I'm building a ducted dust collection system using the 2HP HF blower motor, atop a cyclone separator, atop a trash can, blowing the exhaust through a dryer vent to the outside. Have not yet...
  16. Focus on the Workspace
    What measure have you taken to reduce the amount of noise/sound in the shop? I'm thinking about acoustic treatment, sound absorbing panels, vibration reduction, etc… In my last shop we had the ClearVu cyclone dust-collection system that was amazingly loud, by far the biggest source of noise I'm...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    It's me again, and it's time for another round of "Money burning a hole in my pocket!" Well, I have saved a bit of my allowance up and I need another sander. Currently all i have is a cheap B&D 1/4 sheet palm sander (Jitterbug). I really need something a little more substantial for getting my...
  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hey Guys. Being that I usually work from my garage I am often worried about noise and its effect on neighborhood moral… While talking with an acoustic specialist at work with regard to knocking down some of the noise as it is leaving my tools we discussed things like different foams, mass...
