Default Jmilch's Red Oak Box Build ( instead of Birch or Mdf).. pics inside

I thought I would share a little project of mine I just finished. Don't be afraid to try something different when it comes to wood. I will post my sketchup file in this post if anyone is interested in building a similar box.

My only piece of advice is use 12+ ply EXTRA THICKNESS veneer with fir core (not MDF core). Just my .02

I did not match the grain, and I didnt see the veneer imperfections until the stain was applied. But overall it turned out awesome for a non carpenter such as myself
  • Specs:
  • Single 12" Vented Box Design
  • 3/4" 12 ply Red Oak Extra Thick Veneer
  • Double Baffle (1.5")
  • ~ 3.25 Cubes after displacement
  • 30 Hz tuning
  • 15 in^2 Port Area Per Cubic Foot
  • 15 x 3 x 31" Port
  • 3/8" Routed edges
  • Minwax Antique Oak Stain (2 coats)
  • Premium Polyurethane (used on basketball courts etc. Got it from work) 4 coats
  • About 4-5 hours of sanding before the stain and between coats.
  • Locking T-nuts used with lock washers for the sub (not pictured)
  • Assembled with only 4 screws, extreme duty liquid nails was used for the construction.
  • Inside was glassed with resin after the pics were taken
  • 8 AWG wire was used with bolt terminals


And here are the results:











For size comparison, this is a memphis 15 on top of it.


Finished Pics:










I liked it. Sounds excellent, and it is every bit as strong as Birch ply.

This may work very well in many trunks. It is extremely loud for a single 12"!!

Comments welcome. As I stated I am NOT A CARPENTER by far
