Carve

44 minutes

Carve the cover, using a 6mm bit and a 40mm thick board.

I used hard maple, but pretty much any hard wood can be used. Possibly soft wood as well.

If you don’t have access to 40mm wood, glue together some thinner pieces, like two 20mm boards.

If you use the ½ inch board from the Inventables store, glue together 3 layers for a 1½ inch thick result and reduce the material thickness in the project to 38mm.

Don’t go below 34 mm thickness, since that will leave only a 2mm thick bottom for the cover.

Make sure the glue is well and properly dried, and the glued surfaces are completely smooth before gluing.

Drill hole for USB/Audio

5 minutes

Drill two 12mm holes, 15mm apart, 18 mm from the top of the cover.

I recommend starting with a small drill, then gradually working the way up to 12mm.
Applying painter’s tape might help get a smoother finish.

Add rubber feet (optional)

1 minute

If you’re not using an external speaker, I recommend adding some rubber feet under the cover, to allow the audio from the bottom speaker to get out easier.

This is my first design here. I can open everything without being logged in. How can I make it more publicly shared? I don't know what you mean is wrong?

Support says there is a problem accessing this with personal accounts. From what I can tell, just log out (or open the page in a privacy browser) and you can access it just fine. The developers are apparently working on a fix.

I think it's made public now. Please let me know if there is still a problem accessing this.
