8th orders and horns are pretty complex IMO

Define complex? Complex theory? Complex design? Complex build?

Horns and tapered TLs can be pretty complex to build but not so much to design.

That looks like it's going to be stressful to build. Good luck getting everything cut correctly!

Just the cuts and getting it right will be the tedious part, not really a complex design tho :P
but thats just my opinion

yeah, i'm gonna go purchase some adjustable corner clamps and figure out how the heel how to use them and hope i get all the angles right, which i'm thinking will be the hardest part.

Harbor Freight tools sells adjustable angle clamps for about $2-5 each. I bought two but I don't remember how much they were.

is harbor freight an actual store (other than online)? never heard of it. i only have home depots and lowes around me.

edit: could someone maybe link me to what exaclty i need? i'd really appreciate it. i've built 3 boxes, but nothing coming close to this one.

Yes, they are a real store but I can't find the clamps I bought from them online.

Here is a picture from another site of what mine look like:

thats a sick design right there.
but as far as complex build. once you have the first template build is cake from there .but still sick

Yeah, also since most people are fully capable of doing CNC work....:crap:

^^^^CNC not necessary. Nice but not necessary. Once the original template is cut all the layers can be done one at a time with a template bit on a router table. Very tedious from there but fairly idiot proof. Now cutting the first template by hand...that's difficult.

^^ Yeah I know that it's all about the first piece, but being able to cut that first piece by hand? You better be a maestro with wood.

You gotta figure some of the most beautiful works of all time in any medium were done well before computers and with nothing more than the most basic of hand tools. Its called craftsmanship and is being lost these days with the overreliance on CAD/CAM.

really making the first template is a mater of patience and a decent jig saw, lol.
since ones you cut the rough template sanding will probably will be you next step to get it to the right dimensions.
then like i said on my first post, it will be cake. well not really but yeah. lol.
of course having cnc router would make like 100000x easier. but for builders on a budget. a regular router will do.

i have actually been pondering on making my next HT enclosure in a template and router kind of way, wont be as complex as that one. but it will still be very interesting design.
