    VTA ST-70 enclosure

    Post by bluerondo on Sun Oct 05, 2014 2:11 pm

    I noticed a few custom enclosures other users have built for their amps and after doing some research I decided to try my hand at something. I found some red oak 2" pieces at the local hardware store. I had one requirement which was that it should easily slip on from the top so it can easily be removed for servicing. So far I have decided not to use any screws for fastening. The front panel was the hardest part, composed of three separate sections. All just wood glued together. The back has a thin piece similar to the top front piece. Next version will be very similar except I will use a single piece for the front panel and the center will be table routed out for a straight clean cut. Some higher feet under the chassis will raise the whole thing up a bit.

    I would be great to see what others have come up with.
