    easily bro....

    first thing.... get a router. since ur not going to be an avid box maker (right?) get the ryobi plundge router from home depot thats like 100 bux.

    then get a spiral upcut bit (for cutouts) and a 5/8 or 3/4 roundover bit

    If your talking about the ports its called a kerfed port. I use a table saw in which i space each cut about an inch from each other or sometimes 3/4" of an inch. You want to leave about 1/8-3/16 of wood on the top of the cut

    i have that exact router man hahaha alright so what else do i need?

    im not speaking directly about the port im speaking mostly about the corners of the box. he makes them round like 3/4 circles that are like 2 inches wide

    The router and I use a durablock on the edges because I have the ocd.

    dude, it's already been said, a router with a roundover bit is what you need to round the edges of a box.

    I break the edge with a sander and finish with a durablock, it doesn't take long at all and gives you a better finish especially when painting an enclosure.
