How To: Turn Cheap Salad Bowls Into Good Looking Speakers

Not interested in the standard speaker box? Don't think that a black or silver square with a piece of fabric in front of it will ever be able to fit in with you danish teak or rosewood furinture? Then maybe you should ask yourself: "What can I do with some wooden bowls, some glue and a little bit of skill with a quickly moving sharp piece of steel?" The answer to that question fine readers is: "Create a custom set of spherical speakers". Of course. Kind of an organic version of the Orb Audio speakers we looked at and gave away previously, there is no way we would have ever thought of reusing a salad bowl in this way. We must admit that the results are pretty impressive though. So what was involved exactly?

Courtesy of Ikea Hacker, this nifty setup took approximately 3 hours and 4 Ikea Blanda Matt bowls to produce the 2 speakers you see in the picture. We might just have to try putting one of these together considering our own love of DIY speakers
