2023-01-23 (M) EWC_Box Board cutting and painting

Shortly after I sketched the layout, I changed the box design to make it sturdier. I had an idea about a removable bottom to swap batteries, access the SD card, or plug in a USB cable, but it would create a weak structure. I bought an eight-inch (20 cm) wide wood plank and cut a couple of sixteen-inch pieces (30 cm) and a couple of twelve-inch (40 cm) slabs. I sanded the edges by hand.

The longer slabs will become the top and bottom, and they will have little "wings" to protect the speakers mounted in the sides. The internal area will be a twelve-inch (30 cm) square to accommodate the largest birch paneling I own. I painted the top and bottom black and the rest white for a two-tone look.
