Bluetooth Boombox with Recycled Skateboard Decks Front Panel

This video from Modustrial Maker has it all: woodworking, electronics, and skateboarding! (What else is there really?)

But seriously it’s filled with lots of great build tips and tricks, and it looks cool too (I really dig that two-trucks handle! And the grip tape stripes too!).

Watch:

In this video, I show how to make a portable bluetooth boombox from twice recycled skateboard wood. I managed to use every part of the skateboard in this DIY speaker build. The front panel is formed from reclaimed skateboard wood, the handle of the speaker is made from skateboard trucks, and the feet are made from skateboard wheels and bearings.

I used Dayton Audio kit parts for the electronics. It has a 2x50w Bluetooth amp, which is driving two Tang Band 5” W5-2143 full range speaker drivers. It is battery powered, with great battery life, and most importantly, sounds amazing!
