Well I usually dont post pics of my builds but since I was taking pictures for a teammate I figured what the hell. My first Birch box, 4 cubes after sub and port displacement tuned to 33hz. decided to sand stain and wax it after I finished, still have to do another coat of wax and see if I can get my hands on a good buffer, that is just from a single coat of wax and hand buffing with a rag.

J/K, looks good, if I ever do a system for a home theater I have a good idea of what to try out box wise.

That birch looks like ****. The stain job looks decent minus the glue areas that didn't get sanded away and the blotch on the back (that could be the wood though).

Is that 5 ply birch (do they even make 5 ply)? The layers look really thick.

I like the color a lot though. Is it walnut?

That's what I'm talking about. Maybe it's just an imperfection in the wood? The stain looks great except for there and the splotch on the back that I'm also assuming is an imperfection in the wood.

Where did you buy the wood from?

yeah thats the wood, that strip was a lighter grain. it was HD wood, got a hookup bought 2 sheets for $20 ;) got it precut and he marked it as scrap.

nah going in the corsica I traded the 18" MT for a pair of 12" SX, gonna do matching amp racks and see if i can find a 1/8" or 1/4" birch to to the false floor and trunk lid.

notice its sitting on another box in the pictures? Thats xterra's box for 4 12s ;) He's working on his box though. So I will let him post the pics.

Ah, ok. It looks just like excess glue. The HD birch doesn't looks as pretty as the Lowes birch. Good price though!

yeah cant beat the price, 2 boxes for $20 in wood.

Wow looks nice,but dont look like a 32hz tune???
Port looks short.

nVRuckus
05-01-2007, 09:48 PM
its 33hz, its a deep box, and I didnt go crazy on port area since I couldnt make the box any bigger and wanted to keep 4 cubes.
