Most likely a router and a table saw with a dado blade. Or it could have all been done with a CNC router *drools*

Thanks to all.

I use a dado blade on my table saw to cut the "groves" for the ports and also for the construction of the box along certain edges, it improves strength so I dont have to use bracing. That and the port pieces act like bracing also...

I round over the edges with a router

It didnt take me long I cut the boards the other night in about 2 hours and then another 3 hours or so to finish it up.

It will be flush mounted, I just forgot to cut that extra piece out. I figured into length of the port also.

Build quality is very nice. I personally hate those ports but I'm sure it will sound good. plans to carpet it in the future???

well i have a circular saw and i have to work on four 2x4s to elevate it just far enough for the blade not to hit the driveway...

with a circular saw, if you go slow enough, you can get perfect cuts... :-)

and sanding makes everything happy too!

get screws, a drill bit as big as the screw shaft, and another drill bit as big as the screw head, and you can countersink...

grab some bondo or wood filler and you can fill holes after you countersink...

it's not too bad :yumyum:

i am the same boat in the tools situation except i have an air compressor so i use my finish nailer to nail the boards in to hold them before i use screws and i have a right angle grinder i use to sand with. plus i would rather use my circular saw than a table saw kuz i like to have that power and control in my hands

with a table saw it is much easier to make exact cuts, and you DO have the control in your hands, you control the wood over a fixed blade...much better imo

exactly, a table saw is by far superior to a circular saw

Basically a dado blade allows you do make wider cuts in one pass. Like from 1/8" (which a standard blade width.) to 13/16" wide. That is what mine goes to.

Freud blades...:drool:

My dad's got a Freud in his Makita compound miter saw...it goes through 4x8's like they weren't there, I love using that saw.

depends, but anywhere from 50-500??
I think a real good set could be bought for around a hundred bucks
