Cut the sides so they don't cap off the ends like you have it shown.

Cut the sides so they can be used to accurately cut the width and angles that all the parts fit together properly.

I would stick with what he has. If his sides do not come out perfect he can router the edges flush with the rest of the enclosure.

OK, he has four angles to cut and if there not cut square and parallel to the other edges of the other angles he has to cut and then try to hold the angles together while trying to nail or screw them without them moving as he does this and when he does go to put the ends on like you say, they ain't go to fit worth jack cause their be gaps on at least two if not three joining edges.

u can cap the ends and router off rather then trying to cut that angle.. it works work smart not hard

Redid the sides. I believe it would be easier to do it without capping the ends.

Yes it would because your using the sides to determine your angles and part widths.

And the manner you design drafted it is correct as well, this way when you start assembly you attach the bottom first, then the back. Next, cut your rough widths for the top, slant front and bottom front.

Determine the proper angles for the edges required to fit each other and start either with the front bottom or the top and cut and fit as you go to finish. Whatever overhangs the sides, back top edge and front bottom edge can be routed flush and your done.

Basic Cabinet Making 101, no cabinet maker worth their common sense would do it in any other manner.

Here's prime examples:

thanks. I really did not know that stuff about cabinet making. This should make it easier. I've already figured out what the angles are supposed to be. But that always changes when your building it. Thanks again.

What kind of tools do you have access to for this project??

tools... pretty much anything. All the normal ones anyway. Table saw, router, planer, jigsaw, rotary saw with circle cutting guides. All the measuring tools too. Angle guides. Why? What tools would you suggest using?

Not suggesting, just making a general inquiry as to what tools you have disposal to cut and complete the project. Most definitely have the candy store of tools to get the job done and complete it with cabinet maker precision and as long as you have the skills to use them as such, the end result should be susie cream cheese.

Thanks. I just hope it sounds good through the back seats.
