side by side, Nato Fukasawa masterpiece the Muji CD-Player and our budget cardboard version.
1. the ingredients are:
a CD-player with an access to the batteries compartment from the front (disc side),
a pair of portable speakers that have a built in amplifier,
a pull cord light switch with a cotton thread,
circle cutting knife. for nice circle cuts.
epoxy glue, cardboard glue and some wires.
2. get every thing out of the box.
3. strip down the speakers but keep the batteries housing complete.
4. take the cover off the CD-player. glue the play button so it will stay in it’s active state. now connect the two wires to the CD-player battery circuit, creating a shortcut in the CD-player electric supply. now when the circuit will close the player will start playing.
5. the speakers together with the CD-player determine the size of the case.
6. this step is where you punch all the holes in the front part.
7. fit side panels to the front case edge, and punch a hole in the bottom for the cotton thread.
8. front view of the case.
9. the back panel is a bit smaller then the front one, it gives strength to the structure.
10. glue it all in place with an epoxy. put the switch just above the hole and wire it to the player. connected the amplifier to the headphone jack of the player.
12. here we have all the stuff in place with the cotton thread tied to the switch, just before we seal it. for ever.
13. from the back we will have access to the batteries of the speaker’s amplifier, and in the front to the batteries of the CD-player.
pull the thred for play and pull again to stop.
