This is very impressive considering it took just over a week to build and everything as well. I made an 18 "mil" bass speaker cabinet once and it was very heavy! Bet the thing is built like the proverbial masonry toilet block...

Looks good,
Touch up those t-nuts with a sharpie. Then they won't show through the grill.

That looks great.
I'd like to build a couple cabs like that, but they'd be vertical instead of horizontal.

Do it. Building your own gear is incredibly satisfying.

I don't see why the people around me can't acutally understand this feeling of doing your own stuff :c

I've been planning some time when i buy my head to build my own cab c: This is seriously awesome and you may end up with better results than just buying one... When it's so easy to build one heheheh.

Hey, awesome build man. I'm currently pondering a 1x12 cabinet build. Can I just ask you a couple of questions?

1. How did you attach the front baffle, and the the rear boards? Did you glue them both? If so, how would you get to the speakers is you needed to change them?

2. Where did you get your supplies from (tolex, handles, corners, etc)

In order to attach the front what i did at least when i built mine was to rout an 18 mil channel into the front part of the wood. Then i slid in the front part and glued it in.

How would you get to the speakers if you needed too?

In this case it's an open back so there will probably be threaded inserts into the front, with the speakers attatched to those and secured with nuts. Just undo the nuts when/if needs be...

I can imagine.

Unfortunately, I don't have a job at the moment, so I don't have any money right now to buy parts/wood.

Cool, I get ya.
I didn't think the speakers would have fitted through that gap in the back.
That's something the keep in mind when I plan my build.

Do you know of a good uk supplier for cab hardware?

Looks really good. I like it alot.
Only problem:
It doesn't have it's own room. A cab like that deserves a living room all to itself.

Just to clarify some of your earlier questions, the baffle on this cab is secured to the top, bottom and center-middle bracing by 1 3/4" wood screws.

A lot of people seem to want to glue the baffle in, but this is not necessary, depending on taste. Giving the baffle the ability to flex a little can add to your sound.

The back panels are secured to the back bracing in a similar way to the baffle, so are very easily removable allowing you to reach the speakers (which are rear mounted with T nuts so easy to change).

Some good sites to set you off:

Cheers for the links mate. I'm very impressed with the level of finish you've acheived here. I'm inspired to get the wheels in motion on my build now.

You've hidden the wood screws on the front and rear very well!! Do they screw in from the back of the panels (ie the inside of the cab)?

The baffle screws are through from the inside so yeah you wont see them, but the two rear panels are screwed in from the outside.

Right, you have just over a week to order everything and finish your cab. Thats how long this build took

So what's going on in those pics you posted? There are no visible screws in the rear panels. Was it just propped up for the photoshoot?
