    First Box

    So I am about to start work on my first box. I have to say that I am a terrible builder but I figure it is time try. I will be attempting to build this box with very minimal tooling. The tools involved will be a 14 inch hand saw, one corner clamp, one quick grip clamp, one c clamp, one square, one straight edge, one Dewalt drill, and an old desk for a work table. This will definately be a learning experience. I have not figured out how I am going to make the subwoofer hole but I will cross that bridge when I get there. Wish me luck

    By the way the box will be 1.25 cf sealed and just a plain cube.

    You know, Walmart sells build it yourself boxes that size, or a lil smaller. LOL, $30 or $40 i think. They're even carpeted.

    Just jump in and do it. Dont worry if it doesn't turn out perfect. Building boxes is a learning experience. So don't get discouraged if it doesn't turn out right. Do it again!!
