This week’s task I made a speaker cable box for our electronics classroom. The loose speaker cable has been stored in a cardboard box. If cable got stuck. Someone took cable in the middle and cut it there. Hope we can use whole spools from now on…


I found the design with round corners from festi.info/boxes.py, set the dimensions 170mmx170mmx60mm (inside measures), added text and a few holes for the screws and screwdriver. I planned and assembled four fasteners so I could attach the box to tool board. A pair of fasteners slipped inside the board, so I used a bit universal spray glue to achieve a weak bond to board.
