Made My First Wooden Amplifier with JanSport Campus Ambassadors

Hello, Good Peeps! I am so glad to be finally back to blogging since I was caught up with so many things lately. It had been a month I did not post something here on my blog and I thought I had to wipe the dust off. But here I am, with my very first wooden amplifier where I almost cut my finger yet so worth to try! I mean not to try cutting your finger.

First thing’s first, let’s meet these JanSport Campus Ambassadors Indonesia 2017. I am really happy to be in the same circle with these cool peeps. There are only six of us but we are really excited to see how far JanSport activities will take us next!

So, the first activity of JSCA is creating our own wooden amplifier which took place in ONX Creative Studio. We were assisted with the people there and you have no idea how fun it was! This wooden amplifier will allow you to use your smartphone as a brand new speaker without cords or batteries needed. Awesome, isn’t it?

It could take around 6 hours to make the wooden amplifier because there were a few stages to take which consisted of measuring the woods into 5 wood pieces and 1 acrylic for the cover; cutting the woods; sanding the wood with sandpaper; glueing the pieces into a wooden amplifier; fitting all in; and the fun part is coloring.

Honestly it took me around 30 minutes to measure the wood pieces somehow. And when it came to the wood cutting, I almost shattered the wood, my fingers, and the machine at the same I suppose. The power was too high and I barely got it stabilized until I had to ruin my wood pieces. Amateur, pardon!

Long short story, I had to sand the wood and arrange all the pieces into one wooden amplifier with glue and put on a metal oil funnel which function to enhance the sound. Frankly I got trouble while arranging the pieces because there was one piece that could not fit in and I had to keep on sanding it over and over again. It happened because my wood cutting skill was completely lousy. To be honest, haha! After that, we could color up the wood pieces and the metal oil funnel. But don’t forget to let it dry first after glueing them into one piece.

Voila! Our own wooden amplifier is done! No batteries and cords needed, your original speaker is ready to use. I had so much fun in creating this wooden amplifier though it took me hours to finish it since I was the second from the last who made it. However, you guys can give it a try to make your own wooden amplifier at home. All you need is just woods, tools to cut the woods which I think you can use saw, glues, and paint to color up your amplifier. Sounds easy?

Since it is going to the end of the year, get 50% off for a JanSport bag through this link and get ready to mingle! So, that’s how my very first of December went by. Having new friends with incredible experience. Now tell me yours! How do you usually spend your weekend? Share your thoughts below and wish you have a great weekend! 🙂

Afternoon in La Couleur Verte

Green is the color between blue and yellow.
And I am a creature between the grown leaves on the wall and the paving block.

In this weekend’s blog-post, I wanted to share how I usually create my own hijab style.

                                             

People might call me with an ‘outer-person’. Because that’s how I rock my style since I have decided to wear hijab. It has been a year to me for wearing hijab where all of my skins are covered up with cloth. The reason why I like wearing outerwear (ex: jackets, sweaters, hoodies, blazers, coats, etc) because I think a woman can wear anything they want as long as the clothes they wear don’t really fit their shape of body. Although some people say that wearing outerwear is complicated and uncomfy but to me, it describes me.

P stands for preferential because you are special.

In this picture, it might look like I am wearing a jumpsuit but actually not. It is a separated outfit where I’m wearing long black top by The Executive and a long loose trouser by Colorbox. And for the glasses, I am wearing Le Specs. It is currently my favorite one.

And for the outer, I am wearing white outerwear by New Look. And for the flat-shoes by Mango.

That’s all for today’s blog-post! I hope my look for this weekend could inspire your style in wearing hijab. I am an outer-person, what about you? 🙂
