    Bluetooth is cool and stuff, but I like cables. Any chance you would make a new build of a 2.1 set of speakers with an small amplifier all cable run, but the amp can have a bluetooth receiver, just as long as the speakers are connected to the Amp using cables , I can accept bluetooth as our mobile phones never leaves our hands anyways (Sad face, what has the world come to) Parts made out of cheap materials and speaker drivers. I was thinking of wood because it's easy to work with, but I love the rough look of the concrete ones you made, Resin is very expensive, but I would love to see a driftwood/Resin/gemstone, crystal/aluminium combo with a warm white led strip dimmable illumination, I dislike RGB it's just too much, but a discrete warm white led strip with 150+ LED per meter would look awesome. Maybe the speaker case could be a pyramid shape or a soft S form. That would be a sight, and I am not even thinking it can be made, I mean the soft S shape with wood/resin/gemstone/crystal/aluminium all integrated in the soft S shape, a box shape yes but the S hmmmmm. Hope this will inspire a project, because it gives so many possibilities in the design and the choosing of the hardware. At first I had a Anime girl theme in mind, but I do not think that theme is suited for your chanal.

    Okay, maybe Im just super out of the loop, but realistically how common are "old wireless earbuds that no longer work", since they only just became a thing when Airpods started the whole trend like 2-3 years ago? Can't be too many broken wireless earbuds hanging around. Edit. Okay, Ebay "for spare parts" But still, I found the initial phrasing and idea kinda amusing.

    I like how he says use old earbuds like it's gonna be a cheap project. Then mentioned he used a $30000 CNC machine. Lol. This would only be moderately doable by most people if they use old speaker boxes as well and just concentrated on getting the electronics all sorted out. I could probably buy a reasonably cheap used car for what it actually cost this guy.

    I mean I was on board, brilliant idea.. one thing though. That was not a chamfer router bit... chamfer’s are flat. That was possibly a ‘no file’ or 1/8” round over bit... which can add a nice consistent touch. So does a bit of sand paper... cheaper and far less fussy as a bonus. for those that end up disappointed by a search for a chamfer bit looking similar to the one he mentions in this video..
