This is my second box. A little more complicated than my first one as this has an angled face and this ones actually made out of 1 inch MDF rather than 3/4 particle board :cool: And i must say for what ive done so far, it wasnt nearly as hard or as much of a pain in my *** as i thought it was gonna be, actually kinda fun. This box is 5.2 cubes net for my 2 MA audio 150xe 15"s, sealed. Heres my original plans :

I went to Home Depot and got one sheet of 1 inch MDF which was like 30$, then some clamps, glue, and etc. Ended up being 50$ or so all together. I got the wood cutter dude to cut all my boards to spec except for the side panels which i knew id have to cut myself once i got all the angles and such done.

Ive got a little problem so far but its no biggie i guess, But theres a small gap at the bottom on one side where the angled face is gonna mount. I bought some wood filler so when i get it together and glued and screwed and everything ill wood fill the the crack and leak test it to make sure its sealed good.

Bottom piece - 20x48
Back piece - 14x48
Top piece - 14x48
Angled face - 18x48
Side pieces - 30x24

Also went to wal mart and got some polyfelt and 3m spray adhesive to wrap the box with. Was like 7$ for a piece that was 72x112 :)

Heres what i got done today, worked on it for about 2 hours and im almost done. Oh and btw ive never used these clamps before, and let me say, wood clamps FTMFW

Most sheet wood is marked on the edge with stripes to denote thickness and type of wood. Usually color is type an number of stripes is thickness. If you look at a stack of plywood, it has stripes down the entire stack.
