    Wong05tsx's first box build log

    Gonna be my first build! I hope everything will be as easy as it looks ...

    16cu ft (1.54) sealed box (figuring out dimensions & tuning of a ported got too confusing in my limited trunk space!)

    What's going in:


    Picked up what I could afford + the wood cut at home depot (no saw at home! and cant afford one) For the most part, the pieces are pretty good, theres a few that is off by about 1 or 2 cm at the most + or -, but it should be alright with a few screws.

    Pretty much what I'll be working with... =X!

    First side up.. notice the little ammount of space i got to work with =(.. **** small house



    updates to come..

    you work inside? that's hard core. If you didn't live halfway across the US from me I'd let you come over and use my space and tools

    Yeah :\, no wooden table or anything so even if i brought it outside it wouldnt make a difference.. and theres zero to no tools in the house since im a single parent family (mother only)
    Got whatever tools i could with the 30$ i had, a borrowed a drill from my friend

    Update:

    Wall 2 up

    Is 3 screws good enough?

    from afar.. looking good so far o_O?

    Three screws is plenty, the only thing they do is keep the wood tightly clamped together while the glue dries. A lot of people don't even use screws, or they remove them after the box is fully assembled.

    predrilled some holes in it before the screws to save some money instead of buying countersinks =O, 7 screws so far no splits

    Re: Wong05tsx's first box build log

    5 sides completed. the bottom doesnt exactly fit flush, but i suppose its close enough, i saw this polyurethane filler stuff thats suppose to fill in cracks at Home depot that i think ill pick up and just fill in the corners just in case there isn't air tight, but it looks air tight!

    I wish I had a saw and like perfect cut pieces so that it would look better :\, but I suppose i gotta work with what i got..

    4 sides and the bottom on


    about 2cm too short!, gonna fill this part in with that stuff from HD.

    think i'll pick up some corner/L brackets for extra support too

    I would replace that front panel. It is way too short on all the sides to even think about fixing any other way.
