Got all the peices cut today, took it home to glue the sides and mount the amp

PICS!


Just put everything together to see if it all lined up.



The Sides glued to the top.

Should have the amp mounted later tonight, then i will glue the bottom on, and sand.

Amp set in, ready to mount, just have to find a bit long enough to go through the valveking and the wood.



Tried to get the best shot, and then rotated it.

Nice work so far gtr_101.



I'm adding this as a link in the VK thread. Sorry I can't help with tolex but I'm kinda curious myself in case I add a panel to the back of my combo.

311- Thanks man! And i got some sites on tolex and im pretty sure i can do it.

Guitar godfred- I know! LOL, The speaker is still in the original combo, and that will be turned in to a 1x12 cab.

Update!:

So last night when mounting the amp i messed up a litttle, and drilled 2 of the holes wrong, nothing wood filler can't fix, but still very frustrating.

Today:

Glue bottom to sides/top.
Make panels for front grill, and for back.
Cut the middle out of the front grill to allow airflow.

Got the enclosure glued and screwed together, next step sanding.

Also, didn't make the panels today, ran out of time.

Tomorrow hopefully.

They will work just fine for what im doing, plus, theirs no room in the corners because the amp takes up all the room.

EDIT: Haha, yeah after i mount the amp i will place a peice of wood on the sidewall that the amp will "sit" on.

Very nice man, although I'm sure the actual VK looks kinda weird with the amp missing.
