Build a box with a rabbited edge or overhang. It makes the carpeting processing much easier.

This isn't the "proper" rabbet technique, but as you can see, it works brilliantly. Learned it from BJfish and James Bang (but adapted it since I don't have a router table), and I've done it IIRC three times now with increasingly better results. This was the first attempt:

Actually, you dont need a router table to do this technique, just a router and the bits. I used to do it without the table for a long time. Just use a straight edge when you doing the groove cut with the straight cutting bit.

Hell, whatever works. Sometimes its more of a hassle just to change techniques, even though it might save a little time.

Indeed I agree with you. I just feel like using my router as a fixed base unless I'm building actual speakers :)

i dont do it like that. look at my builds. i wrap everything except the sides,then cut panels to fit on the sides, works well, not the cleanest, but its the sides, cant tell unless you get real close.
