Squeezebox for hot tub [Dec. 19th, 2004|03:37 pm]

My wood-working mom (sandy) made me a cool container last week for a Squeezebox that mounts underneith the roof of the gazebo above the hot tub (the gazebo which she and my dad designed and built). The back side has metal rails which let me bring it inside during the winter. (though I've left it out there for a week now and it still seems to work... it's fairly airtight)

Anyway, check it:

Wow, your mom does nice work! The coffee table has really great inlaying, from what i can make out of it. The other stuff is really impressive, as well. Living in an apartment sucks, since you don't get space for a shop or garage, really.

One concern i would have about the box: being airtight, it might overheat in the summer. But, since it's on metal rails, she could make you a second, vented box for summertime use =)

Really cool... though the remote in the ziplock's gotta go... check this out:

A cheaper way to waterproof your remote is to find someone with a food vaccum sealer (AS SEEN ON TV!) and have them vaccum seal the remote. Use a heat source to melt the edges down for a cleaner look (instead of a remote in a square pouch) and trim the excess off.
