Making a guitar cabinet out of a wine box

Making a guitar cabinet out of a wine box

Started off with a pine wine box. The back was stapled in and removed with pliers. The plan was to reinforce it as much as possible by gluing in a wooden framework. It is close-ish to the ideal ratio for speaker boxes but this was purely coincidental.
The cloth is a wool tweed, stapled into the wooden frame seen in the picture. Normal staples work for the majority but to get clean corners you need large staples and a staple-gun to secure the folded cloth. The wooden panel was cut using a handsaw and the hole in the center was made with a drill and jigsaw.
The frame was cut to fit the wine box as tightly as possible using a circular saw. By removing 1-2mm off the top and bottom pieces gave enough room for the cloth.
The strength of this cabinet comes from the 4 blocks and side supports. The 4 blocks of wood glued to the corners also allow for the wood panel to attach by screws. The two other holes in the wood panel are to screw the wooden frame to the front of the speaker cab.
The wood panel had 8 holes drilled to screw it into the wooden blocks.
The box was sanded and waxed using beeswax. Holes were marked with the speaker and then drilled (only had 6 screws to secure the speaker but 4 is probably enough).
Speaker screwed in. It would only fit the box if screwed into the front of the wood panel but otherwise could be screwed into the back.
It is a 10" P10R I got from eBay. Bought to match the amp impedance of my fender champion 600. Their website gave very accurate dimensions for the speaker which me build this before the speaker was delivered.
With the cloth and frame reattached. Might install a handle in the future.
