How are you cutting your angles (not the panel edges, I mean your panels that might be 5" long on top, and 8" long on bottom)? I always end up ****in up with the jigsaw unless my fence is DEAD on.

Nope now saw for me...

No. I use a table saw to make all my cuts. The only time I use a router to "make a cut" is angeled side pieces.

There is a pretty easy way to make angled cuts on a table saw without messing with a miter gague (and make them perfect). :)

certainly looks purty and I bet it will look even better all loaded up. I really think ya should put some form of light in there, even if its not colored just something to make the viewing of the sub easier, that is pretty much the reason for the plexi right? maybe a red light to go with the red basket.

Also I am curious to see how you are going to mount the plexi, and the carpet job as that is the part I generally screw up. Are you going to rabbit a slot into the plexi to tuck in the carpet and hide the screws or glue or whatever you use to mount it?

Either way it looks sweet and can't wait to see it all loaded up. *reminds me* gotta go and look back at the last build to see if there are any installed pics

Carpet will go down into the cutout for the plexi, juts like I do with my flush mount subs... Then the plexi will fit in there, and be screwed down.

Ahhhh, that works, I am just trying to envision how I wanna do it when I get around to building my box. Not every day ya get to see a high quality box that utilizes plexi, so I figured I would ask.

Kinda looks that way, but its actually a sticker on the back side of the plexi. Its a etched look material...

It involves putting another board on top of the piece you want to cut, put that at an angle and fasten it down to your workpiece.

I'll try to mock up something and cut it for you and snap some pictures while cleaning the woodshop tonight.

Once you figure it out, it is relatively easy to do, doesn't take a whole lot of time and you dont have to screw around with a router or jigsaw.

I left my camera cable at school so I'll have to get pics some other time, but the basic idea is you lay out your angle on the workpiece (what you want to cut). Find a scrap panel that has a straight edge on it, lay it out parallel to the line you want to cut, but have the scrap board wide enough that way you can run it along the fence as your straight edge. Voila you have your workpiece cut at whatever angle you ran your top board at.

There are different ways of attaching your two pieces together. I've always just nailed it (leave it long so there is a place to nail it to without leaving a hole), but I think that the 3M adhesive strips that are made to hang posters and not leave a mark would work excellent if you don't want to nail it.

That should be a good enough explanation for a competent wood butcher to follow. *If not, tell me what your confused on*

You can probably direct drive 3 LEDs in series given that they have a typical forward voltage of 3-4.5V.

As with everything I've watched you build, the box looks incredible. I saw one of your boxes in person recently and the craftsmanship was outstanding! ;)

Maybe something like this (http://www.oznium.com/rectangular-channel) would work well mounted out-of-sight inside the box would work.

BTW, its real simple. I draw out the angle I need. Clamp a straight edge to the panel, right on the line. Then I run my router down it with a flush cutting bit. Easy as pie.
