We have a love/hate relationship with purchasing wooden amplifiers. We love how we can ditch wires and electricity and have a perfect product in one portable piece of wood, but we hate the feeling that we could have built the damn thing ourselves. The thing is, we’ve got DIY projects lined up for what seems like the rest of our life, so if someone out there is making a good acoustic wooden iPhone/iPad amp, we’d take a look. The Sounder Stand is crafted from 100% reclaimed wood (no trees were hurt during the making of this project . . . okay, they were, but that was long ago before they got turned into a barn or something and the other trees in their family have totally gotten over it by now) and doubles the volume of your iDevice. Unless you’re ready to break out the bandsaw, it’s a good purchase.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
