Grr. Master Blaster, you need to start thinking about the fact that you aren't the only one on this forum. He hasn't made a ported box before, and he wants to start out with a sealed, so lets help him do it.

As far as your circle, make a compass of some sort to draw it perfectly onto your baffle. If you have a router, you can purchase or make a template that will get you a perfect, edge-free cutout. I don't have a template yet, so I drill a hole into the inside of the circle, and use a jigsaw to cut the circle out. The hole doesn't have to have perfectly smooth edges, as long as your driver fits snugly, and is well-sealed when you screw it into the baffle.

If you wanted an angled back, just make sure the inside angles of your top and bottom baffle compliment each other. This you can pretty much figure out by looking at it, and making sure your angles match up.
