So you didn’t get what you wanted over the holidays? Well, I suppose we can’t all get what we want, but there are some very ingenious people on the web who have figured out how to build some very interesting things and transform the old into new. We can all benefit from a few cost-cutting DIY projects every now and again. If for no greater benefit than learning the basics of a trade such as carpentry, metal fabrication, or electrical engineering.
A recent DIY project of mine is transforming some old computer speakers into a “sound bar.” Many old computer speakers use high quality speakers (pro tip: check the weight of each speaker, the weight will help you determine the size of the magnet used, the heavier the magnet the better the speaker, generally speaking.)
