    Can u make a port...

    Just wondering if you can have 1 side of the port the wall of the box? do u know what i mean? like instead of makin a real port could u simply just put 1 side as the end of your box then put the other side on?

    does that make sense?

    I also agree that it is not the only way to do it, i prefer it and it is a right way but its not the only way. (unless you ment "its the only way" in another way)

    Yes in another way. There are tons of ways but to me its the easiest, which makes it the way to do it.

    Well I am sort of a slacker so the easiest is the best.

    For constructing the box in general? I usually put some liquid nails on, then put screws pretty much where u think they r needed and where it will hold good and tight, so no air seeps through. Then liquid nails on the inside where the boards come together. I hope thats what u were talkin bout

    Liquid nails is basically wood glue...can be found at Home Depot/Lowes/etc...

    I generally put in a screw every 6" or so...

    I concentrate more on the liquid nails part though...

    "Liquid nails=.....", not exactly but its sort of the same liquid nails is ALOT thicker than wood glue. Liquid nails comes in a big tube and its only a couple bucks u can get it almost at any hardware or wal-mart. As the screws go, put screws in the corners then in the center of those. Then inbetween the center and the left screw and right screw, repeat this until u get it nice and snug to ur likings. I hope u understand what i mean if not just tell me i can make it more detailed, got it?
