After stumbling across a fantastic video by Hexibase on YouTube, I created this “flat pack” subwoofer design that could be cut on the X-Carve CNC from Inventables.  I used his design and the inspiration.  I basically retraced his 3d model and sliced it into several thicknesses of MDF (kinda the opposite of 3d printing 🙂 )  It went together pretty easily. You’ll need many clamps to keep things from moving while the glue dries.  I sanded it down to 320 grit and then coated it with at least 7 coats of spray lacquer with light sanding in between.  My smile at the end of the video should tell you all you need to know.  It turned out great and the X-carve did a fantastic job!
