Hiding your speakers in old books is creative, eco-friendly, and a fun project to do.

Step 1: Gather books
Gather three or more books that, side by side, will be wide enough to contain your speaker.

Tip
If you do not have any books you want to sacrifice, shop at a garage or used book sale.

Step 2: Trace speaker on book
Place the speaker on the front cover of the center book, and trace a rectangle that is slightly larger than the speaker around it. Drill a pilot hole all the way through the center book, and cut the outline all the way through the book with the jigsaw.

Step 3: Cut end books
Trace the same-size rectangle on the back cover of the first book and the front cover of the third book. Cut out the shape on the pages and the inside covers, but do not cut the front cover of the first book or the back cover of the third book.

Tip
Make sure you cut a cavity large enough for the speaker to have a little extra room.

Step 4: Remove paper near spine
Remove the paper near the spine of the books with the jigsaw. This will improve sound quality because the speaker will face the inside spine.

Step 5: Poke holes
Poke several small holes with the awl in the spines of all three books.

Step 6: Secure speaker
Glue the edges and back of the speaker to the pages on the inside of the center book. Be generous with the glue to keep the speaker snug in the rectangle shaped pages.

Step 7: Cut out paper for wires
Cut an area through the pages for the wires to go through, apply glue to both ends of outside of the center book, align the two end books and secure the three books together.

Step 8: Cut hole
Cut a hole slightly larger than a quarter in the back cover of the center book, opposite the spine, to allow air to flow. Then brush glue along the pages to keep them from vibrating when sound comes through the speaker.

Step 9: Find spot
Mount the books and enjoy listening to your favorite artists.

Did You Know?
More than two billion books are published in the United States every year.
