Should look pretty cool

-- AFAIK you do want some metal shielding though. For the noise.

That said, I have some of my amps in temporary plastic boxes and the noise is not at all bad.

I may have to give that a try. I know when laying tile I had a hard time drilling nice clean holes in them. They always had issues with chips around the edges. Sounds like a cool project. Post up photos if you get the chance.

do you have a electric tile cutter thay dont splinter and you get a great cut but cut with glased side down and when drilling place tile on something like thick ruber or sand and dont put drill on hammer and dont use masonary bits and you will be fine
