I ordered a minimum theremin kit from Harrison Instruments and all the parts were very well marked and it went together easily. You will have to make your own antenna and put it in your own enclosure and I liked that because it gave me a chance to make my theremin unique and special. – PDF Link
There are a bunch of other kits you can buy, but this is the simplest one that I could find. Go check out a previous Make: post with lots of choices for kits. – Link
When you make your theremin, put it in an awesome enclosure and make sure to take photos and upload them to the Make: flickr pool!

Bre – I see you use your crackerbox amp for a lot of the projects. Is there an article on how to make one? I did a search and couldn’t find it.
it’s in Make:09 – link
I know Arthur Harrison, He is a really cool guy. Also really good a playing the theremin.
I’d been planning to make my sister a theramin for her birthday for a couple of years. Came across this post and got off my arse to do it. She loves to cook, so I made it out of an old cookbook and used a kitchen colander as the antenna. Worked like a charm! Really fun to use a whisk instead of your hand to create all kinds of crazy sounds.
