thank's,

built a few over the year's, here's one i used a piece of 1/4" x 2" flat steel for the body brace,

you can see in the gut shot they're no too hard to build,

this box was a 35mm slide box,

 

nother slide box one, used a slab of wood full size of the box to give it a bit of heft, should have kept this one sounded nice, and i liked the grain on the box, but if i kept all the one's i liked i would'nt be able to get into the garage,

 

 

Nice!I'm working on my bracing,I like your method.

finished it, sound's nice, even un-plug'd,
