I always found the idea of creating a speaker box out of an old suitcase intriguing. Decided one night to break out the Dremel, cut some holes into a 1940s Starline suitcase Stevie got me as a gift, then tore apart one of her old bulky Sony speakers to reuse the parts (Luckily she wasn’t attached to the speakers).

This is what the outcome came to be! Looks dope, and sounds great! My next project is to make a matching set with the other speaker box.

Handmade- Door Table with Inlet
Whisky Ginger showcased it’s first 2nd Friday event. Couple days before, I realized we didn’t have a main table to use. So I built one out a random door and some reclaimed old growth wood. Added my own personal touch of creating an inlet area for a storage compartment within one of the door panels.

Handmade- Book Shelf
After sketching and mocking everything out, I had purchased some piping. Screwed the mounts to the wall and attached the piping to the mounts. Added some “u” pipe clamps to the ladder itself so it can easily slide onto the mounted pipes attached to the wall. This braces the ladder for a secure support. Then cut to size a piece of wood for the bottom half. The wood closes the open gap on the bottom half, as well as adds support against the wall and gives the books something to rest on. (BUY IT)

Over the last few weeks I’ve been working on a series of animal illustrations for a new game app www.tastebud.co. Meet the “preppy / red panda” and the “surfer / penguin”. View work in progress.

Handmade- Series of Plugins
Decided to expand the series of gas lantern > electrical plugin lamps. Converted these 3 beauts. This time around was a much cleaner job, and much cooler looking I might add. Each running on a Thomas Edison style lightbulb for you old timers into the early 1900s look. You can find these soon at Whisky Ginger.

Handmade- Plugin “Gas” Lantern
Came across a few more gas lanterns. Ended up removing the gas tank in this one, wired the electrical through the bottom. Shining a Thomas Edison style lightbulb adds a nice final touch. (Instagram photo) (BUY IT)
