It's a good idea in theory, but the back is quite crowded.

Not sure about this guy but I change sources at least twice a day. That would wear out my nice cables pretty quick.

Fortunately I only own a CD player, so I don't have to worry about that.

Wow, what a nice and simple idea to make a pretty enclosure.

Click the image to open in full size.

No more IKEA spoon boxes! And I think IŽll put an acrylic plate on top

Thanks for sharing, Waltson.

Cheers

Nice Cases! I suppose you could always build a smaller second box to handle the input switching duties.

Lovely woodwork, though. I wish I hate 1/10th of that talent.. Now I'll go back to hacking up Hammond and Parmetal cases... Poorly
