aight heres the deal , im making a box for projectpat06 and its comming out fairly good, it ***** my table saw is getting fixed as of now, so i had to use a circular saw, o well , its still comming out good, only trouble i had was the circle and the port hole, stilll will come out good, lil sanding, it will all be flush which will look awsome, then its caulked in the middle, and the local lumber yard was out of MDF so i had to get mahogany MDF for the same price, same thing excpt has a sheet off mahogany vaneer on it, on peice is red oak i beleive, o well here it goes, next one will look even better once i get my table saw ;)

rout the edges and it will look half *** decent, and checked the receipts 30.98 $ a sheet, o well drive 20 miles at 6-7 bucks in gas to get it for 22 or so at HD, whatever it is, ill save me the time

you used a bit too many screws on them sides there, but otherwise, as long as the box was designed correctly, not too shabby :)

i built an 8cube ported box with my friend in under 4 hours ;)

on the screws. 4" separations is just right. and predrilling is a must. with just the right amount of glue it should be just fine.

update, finally finished, turn out good, there could have been one or 2 parts that i could have done better, just the slopiness in the port kinda *****, and the bottom of the box isnt as flush as it could be, i could sand some more tommorow, but its the bottom panel no one will see it, and if it gets carpeted then theres no points

well heres the port in action , its a lil sloppy in the inside , im sick as hell today so nothing is perfect
