Trace momentary switches

I realize etching six momentary switches is taking the long way around a problem, but I couldn't resist. This board will be included as part of a larger controller I'm putting together, and should have photos of in about a week.

Tiny passive nearfields

I had a couple of 2" paper cone speakers lying around and was looking for an excuse to get back on the laser cutter. A $2 investment in Masonite later, I built these:

The "S"/"M" (speaker/microphone) switch flips the polarity on the speaker.

Not surprisingly, they sound like third-hand Auratones... I'm going to work on the enclosure design and source other speaker types to see if I can get some semblance of bass response out of these things. In the meantime, I think they look nice and will work fine as special effect speakers. Success!
