Last year, we showed you these awesome jerrycan speakers. But they cost over $400, which sucks. Don't worry, though: here's how you can make your own using, uh, some jerrycans and some speakers.


OK, so the sound quality might not be that high — somehow, I suspect they aren't quite heavy or rigid enough to sound great — but who cares? Use them at a party or something. The fact that you can make them yourself out of parts you (possibly) have lying around at home makes it worth a try.

This build-it-yourself guide was put together by industrial designer Samuel Bernier, and all you need is:

- A pair of stereo speakers
- Speaker wires
- 8 screws (the type will depend of the speakers you've got
- 2 EMPTY AND CLEAN Jerrycans (or similar objects)
- Polyester fill
- Amplifier


Easy. So go ahead and read his guide. Then make them. Let me know how it goes for you. [RE_ via Nerdstink via Make]
