  • Another Amp Case

    I am almost finished with another Amplifier case,this one was made for someone who wanted something for showing off their displays at trade shows. Here are a few pics.I will be adding an Arduino Uno for system control,A Pre-Amp utilizing theTI PGA2320 volume control chip,A small Class D amp from PE will also be included.The 5 brass rods connect to a capacitive touch board from SparkFun.These will augment the 7 inch touch controlled LCD.

          Dang Bob, you have my permission to quit your day job. Your woodworking skills are outstanding my friend, and the same goes for your engineering skills.

            dwigle: The software running is a demo project from 4d Systems,the company provides plenty of support for the Arduino platform.The display shown is quite powerful and can run code standalone,the LCD has a micro SD card on board and is running what you see on the screen.

            I will be loading my own code(c++) on the arduino board once I have it finished.Ultimately the end user(4D) will load their own code to suite their own requirements.

                              The main ingredients are as follows: The 4 corner posts are maple laminated to walnut(3/16),The base and top frame are cherry,side panels and top panel are a figured maple,On the front panel the brass rods are mounted in walnut.the bezel surrounding the display is mahogany as are the small pieces surrounding the brass knob.

                              I still have to install mounting feet on the cabinet,I just have some scrap pieces as footings at the moment.

                              Edit: The Maple used for the corner posts was purchased at Home Depot and I really enjoyed using this,it goes well with other species.

                              BTW:Where in NJ are you,I used to live in Suffern,NY
