Hi guys, after months thinking about making my second custom cab, im gonna start this project.
The main reason for choose this design is the thin profile that it has, second reason is some space issues in my current home, theres no much space left for something bigger, so i think that this will fit great anywere, and the best part is that i love this cab shape, super cool imho.
For those who dont know how this cab shape is, take a look at this pics
I had already some desings made, and one crappy mockup in google sketch up
the first characterists that i want are:
-slim design, no more than 50 cm between front and back
-not too small, but not tall either, over 1,30 should be fine
-detachable and over 50 cm wide one player control panel
-easy to assemble / dismantle
Ill use an old 4:3 17" lcd monitor and al old P4 barebone, but i plan to make it easy to upgrade with minor changes, the main construction will be made of mdf and pine wood.
I bought some days ago the pine wood to make the main sides of this cab, i choose pine because is cheap, easy to work with, comes in various sizes and is hard enough to make a good structure.
Ill use curvy tables (used for make base boards) to make the main shape of the side pieces , and doing it this way ill no need to use a router.
Pine for the main structure and base board tables to make the shape
Gluing the tables in his place
Helo wants to join the wood party
Now them need to dry before i can cut then in angle.
Ill update this thread as soon as i can continue with the woodwork (need to buy the mdf)
