VBBShaker

After living with mtg90s excellent VBSS design (I have a pair and am VERY happy). I have decided on a variation.
I will call this the Value Buster Butt Shaker build.

This will serve 3 purposes:
1) A near field sub, 2) Butt shaker duty for my 2 MLPs, and, 3) a foundation for a back row bar.

Photos to follow

I like it Craig the box looks great! The brace you have at the top by the angles cut will help hold the wood together a little bette with more surface area to bond to. The hardest part I had when I built my angles wedge boxes for the 8-12's nearfield was trying to figure out how to brace it. I ended up using screws and backing them out once the pl dried and filled the hole up. Keep the pictures coming.

Thanks Mike,

The hardest part on this one was ripping angles on the edges of these large panels.

I think I saw someone commenting on your thread about making an extra tall fence? Which I did and tilted the blade (34degrees) then running a panel thru vertically on edge against the fence - actually worked pretty well.

The 56 degree cut was with the same blade tilt, but running the panel thru laying flat.

I remember that, the cuts were hard but once you get going and figure it out things start moving along. I used scrap pieces first to make sure I had the right angles. Did you do the same.

Yep used scrap wood, and even then, measured about 5 times before cutting.

No major mistakes - so far ray:

This thing is huge - when finished I will have 2 - 4x8 sheets of MDF, and 2.5 sheets of plywood (that's before the bar top)

@eng-399
I am intending to cover this with a black carpet (or heavy black fabric).
I'm thinking you might have a recommendation?

Joann fabrics check out the eco-line of fabrics should be 5.99 a yard. Then once you're there there's a sign where you can text to get a 20% off coupon on top of it. Watch some YouTube videos for installing carpet and always have the seem on the bottom of the box where no one will see it.

I'll check out the eco-line options at Joanne's.
Will also be looking into some of the thinner black carpets they have in stock (on the rolls) at Menards / HD.

I used the 3m adhesive spray I sprayed the box 1st then the carpet and slowly aligned everything in place. I did one panel at a time with the 3m adhesive spray that you can find next to the tight bong glue at menards.

RT,
With the "colorful" suggestions from others above; I have a feeling it is only a short time before our old-friend "Hanes" will find this thread. Also; there may be room in here for a "certified carpet consultant', unless of course you have retired from that responsibility .

Long term historical and even current research shows that while looking into and qualifying to assume all the variously available and necessary positions as a "certified carpet cunsultant', may, at times, as a necessary part of the hole job, require steeling oneself to summons up unprecedented above and beyond the known call of duty , desire, drive and imagination , knowing full well in advance there will be times when unavoidably forced to face "that which cannot be unseen" in the quest of : does the carpet match the drapes.

In the 'retired' and "responsible" crowd, "decorating" becomes an ever growing challenge.

YMMV

rainy weekend progress photos, added bracing, extended the height of the "back wall" to allow for the bar/drink ledge, added some stuffing, fabricated and secured the end caps, then used a flush trim bit in my router to finish the edges.

Next up; pick a covering (black carpet from Menards, or a heavy "econo-fabric' from Joannes)...

Some of the Chicago area guys have come up with some very nice nearfield designs. I can't wait to hear your impression once they are up and running. Keep on pushin'.

OK back to progress photos:

I needed to build a removable vertical support that could be screwed to the backside once the unit is placed.

At this point it was time to cover the unit with carpet. I went with the cheapest indoor/outdoor carpet that Menards sells it's called "auto-bond". simply took my time in trimming and gluing it on with ordinary carpet cement. Here is the finished result.
