When I built my first box I didn't take into consideration the thickness of the wood. I ended up cutting my last few pieces down 3/4".

Are you going ported or sealed? Don't forget sub and port (if ported) displacement. Wood glue everything and use screws at least twice as long as the wood is thick every 4" or so.

If you think of something else...give a yell.

just plan it out on paper.. dont worry about it to much, if you make a mistake you can fix it. Worst comes to worst u screw up and spend another $10 on wood. I think i worried about stuff way to much on my first box and thats why i ran into troubles. Measure twice, cut once and u should be just fine.
