There was a guide in the tutorials section. {not sure if it still is}

I use 3M super 77 spray glue {I don't get along with Super 90}
and an actual carpet knife. {very very sharp... dangerously sharp.. and double sided}

[note.. actual carpet blades are thinner and sharper than utility blades]

Using one piece of carpet long enough to go more than all the way around the box and wide enough to cover more than half the ends, I just carpet the long sides and then fold in the ends and cut through the layers making the seams an X on each end of the box.

Many builders make the ends of their boxes have indentations so the very edges can be wrapped and the indentation can be one solid piece of carpet so it looks perfectly seamless.

I tried super 77, didn't work To hot here in AZ I guess. I use weldwood contact cement that come in the green can. Works great out here in our 100 degree plus weather.

The key to Super 77 is to spray both surfaces and then let it sit for about a minute before you join them.

Like the other said check out the tutorial section for a couple of threads on carpeting.

good place to start is on e d's website. great vid actually. and i use a certain spray adhesive labeled 1080 but i cant remember the company that makes it. shit is great. also if you have a router with an upcut bit you can actually do rabbited edges once the box is built and all the corners are flush. make a jig out of 1/4" mdf or 3/4" scraps, just something with a straight edge. set your router to an acceptable heighth with the 1/4" upcut but and run the router right alont the seam up against the secured jig (using clamps) wahbam you have a seem to make a nice prof. look. really time consuming that way, but works.

Also make sure to buy more than you need as you may mess up
