fiol’s thread got me wanting to get off my ass and finally put together a stick, but I don’t have the majority of the equipment I hear builders talk about using. All I’m going to have is a drill, various hand tools and wood glue. I know the basics of putting a box together without anything fancy, I can get that done, but I was wondering about the best way to mount a JLF if you don’t want screws popping up on the top of the case? I read up on different mounting techniques at slagcoin, and what I’m seeing is leaving me to think that this may be the only real option I have.
I’m not sure if Home Depot would route out something small for a price, but that may wind up being the only thing I can do. I know Ecks did something with a QFC case to mount the plate with the screws hidden, I’m hoping someone here has experience in this and can give me a few pointers, or maybe a link I can look at. I realize that this may be a bit obvious to many here, but its my first time actually looking at building a stick from scratch.
