I needed a desk, so I built one out of birch plywood.

A Small Golden Speaker
After building my big speaker I still had a sheet of plywood left. The obvious solution was to build a smaller speaker. I already had an overload of speakers, so I decided to build one for my girlfriend Anna.
Concept My concept was a mono speaker built as a small vertical cabinet. I liked the idea of building a ported (bass reflex) design using a port constructed as part of the cabinet.
Klaus the Plywood Sausage Dog
After building a speaker I still had a lot of plywood.
Klaus is a plywood sausage dog. I made him as a birthday gift for Anna.
MusicBee Playlist Sync
MusicBee to Google Music playlist sync Note: This has stopped working because Google have deprecated the Client Login API. Also I used Spotify now.
My favourite music player for Windows is MusicBee. It’s fast with large libraries, is full of useful features and utilities and is easily expandable with plugins. I wrote a utility to synchronise playlists from MusicBee to Google Music, allowing me to use those playlists on my phone.

LED Light Control Board
After I built my LED sign (I discuss the process here), it became clear that simply turning the light on or off wasn’t enough. A few challenges were identified:
The light was too bright. At about 30 W of LEDs (which are far more efficient than a similarly rated incandescent would be), it puts out a lot of light. Not exactly mood lighting.
It needed to flash!
I decided to build something which addressed both of these.
