    Quick FibeGlass question

    I've been watching and reading about all you guys doing these amazing looking glass boxes. The thing I've noticed is sometimes you end up with crazy ***, odd shaped boxes on the inside.

    How in the hell do you guys calculate the volume of your FG boxes?

    some people use packing peanuts

    some don't even care, i don't think......

    lots of the ported boxes i see are wooden boxes wrapped with glass just for the look.

    for some shapes I figure it out ahead of time. like my current project will be about 2/3 the size of a perfect rectangle box.

    Re: Quick FibeGlass question

    packing peanuts are by far easier to remove from the said enclosure... but the beer would definately be more fun!

    Guess/not worry too much about.

    Or as I will do is build a box and then 'glass it in.
