End Tables made from Speaker Boxes

This is a great project for someone who loves music. 

Tool requirements:  Drill, level, screws, pipe wrench.

 Cost of materials:  depends on the desired height, type of pipe you use, and thickness of glass.  Could be $40-$100.pipe and fittings

 Where to begin:  This project should take a couple of hours to complete and a little time in planning.  If you don’t already have a set of speakers you can search thrift stores looking for that perfect pair or get obsessed with online classifieds.   If you are shopping for speakers check under the hood before you buy… it blows when your speaker is blown Once you have your speakers you can decide on how they will be placed and what size glass you want.  I suggest using something in the ballpark of 1/4″ thick with a polished edge.  Most major Do It Yourself shops will custom order glass at reasonable prices so get your order in and pick up the pipe and fittings you need to get things started. 

First you want to pop off the protective foam/fabric cover. 

Measure out where you want the pipe to be attached and play around with the placement until you are resolved that you have found the perfect place.

Use a pipe wrench to make sure that the fittings are on secure and adjust as needed to achieve a level surface. 

Add rubber nubs to prevent the glass from sliding.

And place the glass on top; you’re done!
