Ive been building sub enclosures since 1982. Joined the USAF in 1985. Graduated State Tech. in Memphis with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Worked at BICC cables as a quality control engineer testing wire
and fiber optics I have extensive knowledge in wire,cabling and fiber optics. My hobbies since I was in high school were woodworking. Ive had a Cabinet shop since 2010 building furniture and sub enclosures. I now operate a full time professional
Sub box Cabinet shop with CnC capabilities. I specialize in CnC carved Lexan glass Led enclosures.

Cherryman, nice work! What kinda pricing on the cnc lexan or plexi.

Most of my carved enclosures cost 250.00 most carved windowed lighted enclosures are 450.00. This enclosure was 575.00 and includes 2 different sets of dynamic Led's. One for the basketball court and one for the sub glass windows. I never use plexiglass its weak Lexan is 10 times stronger than plex and will not crack or stress. See the build video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1yA28A9byM many more of my builds on my youtube channel. Thanks

look into doing birch plywood. better then mdf and looks nicer.

08-16-2014, 02:32 PM
Yes Ive used birch many times when customers request it, but it chips and over time the edges start to peel/separate, it sands unevenly due to the ply base but the main reason I personally dont use it you cant carve into the material since its a ply.

I was talking about the lexan, sorry should have said that. You ever use MGP on any boxes.

Nice chit brotha!

In 2 years of using .25 Lexan Ive never had failure.

In 2 years of using .25 Lexan Ive never had failure.

Really. That thickness is that strong. Wow. I would of thought .375 or higher

The key is keep large sizes supported small sizes hold up just fine always use fasteners 1" to 1.5" apart and don't drill near the edge. General rule I use hole must be at least a inch away from the edge. The double walled Birch box build customer requested .5 lexan and a 12" x 6" piece was 60.00 at my cost.
