This clever project boosts the sound coming from your smartphone. And all it takes is a little creative work at the band saw.
While the speakers on smartphones have improved over time, the sound coming from them doesn’t project very well. However, with a little shop time, you can create an amplifier like this one. The unique design dramatically increases the volume coming from the speaker located on the bottom of the phone. A tapered opening in the top accepts most phone models, even with a case. Of course, if you’re going to build a project, it’s nice to hone some woodworking skills along the way. For this project, you’ll spend some quality time working with your band saw.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
