speakers and docks are frequent topics here at Unplggd. We especially love if those aforementioned products are clever DIY projects like this one we spotted on ReadyMade. With no shortage of love for upcycled vintage tech, this project is right up our alley and we can't wait to get cracking on our very own old school iPod speakers.
Learn how to turn an old non-working vintage radio like the one shown above into a fun iPod speaker courtesy of ReadyMade. The project takes less than an hour to complete and is rated by ReadyMade as an Easy project. To make this project you will need a vintage radio large enough to house computer speakers and computer speakers. The tools needed for this project are: a screwdriver, a mini phillips head screwdriver, pencil, power drill, and 1/4" drill bit. Check out the project on ReadyMade for the complete instructions. While this project does not take advantage of the great sound the vintage radio might have had, it is a nice way to use a piece of older tech that has not stopped working as a housing for newer tech.
