I bought a few sheets of MDF at 18mm and 8mm thicknesses
I started off with a single side panel, I did not have a proper workbench so I had the sheet of MDF on the ground. First I marked the outline of the side panel.
I had some trouble with getting the angles right so I 3D printed a few pieces to help me with that.
Then is was time to cut the sidepanels!
After cutting the two side I used a router to get them equal.
I used my design to measure and cut a lot of the panels
Next I added wooden blocks to the side panel for where the connecting plates should mount
Then I started assembling the cabinet
I wanted to be able to easily access the underside of the control panel so I decided to use hinges like these:
But as you can see there is quite a bit of space so I routed out a little part for the hinge
To be able to move the cabinet easily I mounted two wheels on the underside
At this point all the panels were mounted and most holes were cut so it was time for painting. I did two layers of primer and two layers of black matte paint.
After painting it was time to bring the cabinet inside!
Finally I applied a dark wood vinyl and black T-molding:
That's it for this part, in the next part we will start with the electronics.
