You don't have a build thread on it yet correct? I'd suggest that you put this all together in a thread or you'll be getting tons of posts asking you questions repeatedly. You can't blame us. You did a hell of a job putting them together
Now, if I do go to that route, do I need to be very good good at wood work? I did build two decent boxes but having a glass on the front most likely requires a very clean approach and even a very minor issue will be visible thru the glass.
Looks like it’s been mostly covered by others.
If you think your existing boxes are clean enough inside, I think modifying would be way easier than starting over.
I’d use a router to remove panel thickness from on top of the horn ribs. Freehand, 1/2 or 3/4 bit would work well. 1/4in depth per pass. Then rough trim the rest with a jigsaw, and use a flush trim in the router for perfection.
You’d still have to make and glue in the window supports.
As for skill to make it look good, it always helps
The mini’s were my first complete build though, and it wasn’t too bad. Before them, I had only built a pair of flatpacks, and modded a flatpack to ported.
Wood is generally forgiving. As long as you get everything glued up straight and square, bondo and sanding can fix most errors.
