A second sheet is needed whether or not you have the bracing there. Unless you have a piece of scrap wood sitting around that can be 26.5" x 12.5", you will need to get a 2' x 4' sheet as well as a 4' x 8' sheet.

You can also see how it is laid out.

imma, what did you use to do that, or can you do that for me? i can pm you the cuts, but i want to see them laid out like that on the sheet.

bottom 26.5 x 46
sides (2x) 26.5 x 12.5

Just as an observation, I noticed that the baffle and sides are not equal lengths. Even though it works out because the top and bottom are shortened, I think it's safer to have all the height pieces the same size so that they can be cut with the same guide setting. That way, you won't have to worry about your sides cut being exactly 12.5" or you don't have to worry about the wood being slightly thicker or thinner than .75".

It's something I do to make sure the top always sits on evenly and doesn't have gaps. It would be better to have excess or a gap on the base so then you have only a slight amount of wood hanging over from a side panel or you have a slight amount of overhang from the base. Those can easily be sanded down but it's more difficult to fix a gap due to one panel being too big or small.

Sketchup and it's free to download and explore.

"Google Sketchup"

it's free and easy to use.

It's the same concept, you just rip it 26.5" wide for the top, bottom, back and sides. Then cut the baffle slightly larger if you want to flush trim it. The baffle goes on last and mounts evenly (as opposed to the top and bottom). There is no real advantage to doing it any particular way, unless you need a removable baffle or removable top. Just think about turning it on it's back (90 deg.)--then the top becomes the back, the baffle becomes the top, etc. etc. Just depends on the orientation and the order of assembly, which is largely personal preference.

Yea, I'm retarded for not noticing that. I guess it's due to me always building from the base up ahha.

Most of the time I actually build the same way you do, base first and top last. :)

Sometimes I mix things up though, like if the box is going to be painted or finished with something other than carpet.
