Hi, I am not really sure if this is the right forum for this, but I've been playing around with idea of making a "mini stack" to be played at home. Idea is to have 1x12" cabinet (or two stacked) and amp head in plywood enclosure that would follow the design as seen in image below. Now I would need some input from woodworking gurus on the forum. What would be the most suitable way to get the sides done? Currently I am playing with idea of making a mold for the sides and laminate the sides from multiple thin layers of plywood, Do you have any experience how thick plywood could be used here so that it still bends without cracking? I have thought that if I made the mold modular, so that I'd have rounded corner blocks and I could change the straight center pieces that could be attached together, I could fairly simply produce different sized enclosures, in this case the amp head and the cabinets, How about the pressure, how much pressure should I need when laminating the sides? I was planning that I'd use some planks length of the depth of the cabnet + 10cm, Put two planks on top of each other, drill holes at the end of the planks, and have bolt going throught the planks, making the planks as clamps when tightening the bolt, when having the sides between the planks. The planks should be rigid enought that they do not bend when aplying pressure from the ends Any input or ideas I would definitely want to hear from you who have more experience on working with plywood.
