Not bad , but it looks like you got some air leaks there. And you will probably get raped by the cronies here for your choice in wood. But it's a start :)

Are you talking about the difference in what I got and the other "mdf" for countertops? Well it was in-between the wood I got and the countertop wood, and I got the 'flakey' wood cause it was cheaper lol. Plus I was told this wood is easier to screw together without cracking.

Yeah lol Id figured, plus I should add that the air leaks are mostly fixed.

The top piece in those pictures isnt screwed on, and I sanded down the pieces that were holding it up on the sides, so its flush now.

You would probably get a better response from denser wood.

coat the inside of the box with fiberglass resin, this will seal it up good and should be just as good as mdf then.

Thanks.. But I didnt want to put too much money into the wood... I have a HUGE piece of 1/2in plexi in my garage so I use a lot for various reasons
That gap is fixed now btw

Well is the resin clear? because I already painted everything and I dont want to repaint it lol.

He bought the cheap wood because it was cheaper, buying resin for the inside of the mbox would make it more expensive than mdf.
