yeah, I believe that looney tune has an Oz sub for the box. I can't remember for sure. don't worry about that scuffed corner. I'm going to router the edges :naughty: So yeah, I'm counter-sinking all the screws for added sexiness. Then I'm carpeting it in prefab-gray carpet.

oh, btw, here's the sketchup.

I prefer to let excellent cuts form an excellent seal. ;)

I don't hate on the bond but rather the mess it creates. I had my bottle explode while putting some down and that **** got all over me. I quit it after that and I didn't like the way it sanded and it didn't take stain.

I think you were pushing the wood against the blade. I wouldnt call it scuffed:)

i want a beefier saw, it'd make it so much easier. but hiring a friend to help for the price of a pizza is cheaper lol

baseballer1100
11-19-2006, 10:50 PM
yeah but if you make enough boxes those pizzas will start getting expensive.

jmanpc

Meh...Gorrilla glue.

It is horrible for wood construction...It merely creates a physical bond between the wood. Try titebond, Creates a chemical bond, making the glue joint stronger than the wood itself.

and :fyi: Silicone is used to seal the box...not glue, though if you do make correct cuts you will need no silicone sealant.

you get a 6.5 on my scale...minuses for the cuts, and the glue.

honestly, for a 3.25 cf box, for a single 15, gorilla glue, screws and caulk are more than sufficient. yes, i know that burn in the wood is kinda ghey, but it's gettin routered off anyways... I can assure you the cuts are straight. a pet peeve of mine is crooked cuts.

I feel your pain. I tried to cut a 4'x4' piece on my own and even though the saw was pretty nice, it just wasn't going to happen without help.

:eyebrow: You have issues if you can't cut a 4' x 4' piece of 3/4" MDF by yourself.I've done it quite a few times.Granted it IS a LOT easier with someone helping you, it's still fairly easy.

Looks fairly solid do far, but you **** at lining wood panels up ;fyi: :p: but it takes practice.

Getting a 4x4 sheet cut using this table saw is impossible without dropping the wood and pinching the blade:
http://www.IMGBoxUpload.net/upload/files/imagebox_1164027243_r53.jpg

Especially when the sheet I was trying to cut was only 19" thick. That's about 2.5 feet just hanging off of one end.

To make it even worse, this is my "work area" that I have to deal with:

what're you talking about? all the edges are exactly flush. in a couple places where it looks like it's off, that's because a tad but of gorilla glue had expanded out. Misaligned sides are another pet peeve of mine.

isnt a table saw easier than a circular saw? its not too hard to cut a 4x8 myself with a circular, ive never used a table saw except in school for other things

jmanpc
11-20-2006, 01:31 PM
the thing about a table saw is that you've got to hold the wood up by yourself on that tiny little table. i wish i had like a giant countertop of a table saw lol.

I'll help ya out jman. Are we still going to use one of my orion 15's to test the box for leaks.

Ahhh, cool.It's one of mine too. Gorilla glue ftl :p:

And I hate the MDF boogers :crap: I usually have them for 2-3 days after I actually do the cuts.

im wondering if i should use some of those clamps. Is the purpose of the silver clamp to keep the box clamped at a perfect 90 angle?

jmanpc
11-24-2006, 11:12 PM
yeah, they're really nice. cheap on harbor freight, i believe

Jared530
11-24-2006, 11:13 PM
i might have to invest in a couple, i think i bought a Ball Mill off harbor freight to grind my black powder

jmanpc

theyre great for making sure the wood is straight for drilling holes and glue.
