I started this project before joining Makerspace, but since then I've brought it in to work on. I was given a tea sampler in a decorative box some years ago. I could never bring myself to toss it. One day I got the idea to turn it into an iPod dock with speakers.
I gutted a set of computer speakers and hacked it down to fit inside the box, then went about dressing it up. I've never really made any steampunk gadgets, but I've always wanted to so this was my first attempt.
