    Box for RE8

    I was thinking of going with a internal volume of 530cu. in., after displacement around 375 cu. in.


    dimensions
    5 x 8.1 x 13.12 (golden ratio)

    external
    6.5 x 9.6 x 14.62

    does this sound about right?

    sounds right, but good luck actually measuring that out. round it off to the nearest 1/8th inch

    no you dont. but applying resin on the inside of the box walls never hurts.

    Do I just apply resin to the MDF or do I cover the MDF with fleece and then apply resin to it.
