    Re: Tools for box construction

    router to cut the speaker holes usually. i use a bunch of clamps, titebond 2, brad nailer, air compressor, router, jasper jig (makes cutting holes 1,000,000x easier), 90 degree angle clamps and usually a couple beers..

    Re: Tools for box construction

    Router is used to cut the holes (like mentioned) and also for rounding over port edges, box edges, flush trimming, etc. You can do many many things with a router.
