    How much of a PITA is ......

    building an enclosure inside of a cars trunk. i want to build a good size box for small spectra, but the opening for the trunk is rather. depth of the opening is about 15".

    anyways is puting the box together inside the trunk a royal pain? or is it fairly easy?

    when you design the sub box, design it for ease of assembly.

    The cut sheet should be made so you can drill & screw w/ ease.

    It can be tricky but is very possible. If you can build a box you should be able to build one in a car

    gonna buy lots of corner clamps to hold it together while glue drying in the car should do the trick right

    I just use the clamps as an extra set of hands. Once glued I screw it together and have never had a problem

    Re: How much of a PITA is ......

    how would i screw the bottom to the rest of the box? or will the wood glue be enough to hold it together?

    All that screws are is mini clamps. They offer no strength whatsoever and actually weaken the wood by putting a void in it. If it can be avoided, then screws aren't usually used. The wood glue is what holds boxes together.
