Default Try two: Images attached

I'm learning, slowly but surely...

Cool Corrected image - dimensioning error

I made a width dimensioning error with the first image. Corrected image is attached.

Also, thus far I have assumed that Fr means Fs. Please let me know if I have this wrong.

Thanks.

Default Materials and Joints

I'd like to start building the cabinet...what is recommended for:

1) Materials - MDF vs. PLywood?
2) Thickness - 19mm?
3) What is the best way to build the joints? Should I caulk the joints? Use adhesive on the joints or fasteners like nails or screws?
4) What to place under the cabinet? Spikes?
5) Any recommended wires and connection parts to use?
6) What to use as insulation / damping materials?

Thanks!

Ha...well, let me help by saying that the simpler and more affordable, the better! I have limited tools, and hope to achieve good value for money.

LOL Chrisb!

1) plywood will sound better
2) if 19mm is .75" then that's great - but i like to double up the front and back
3) i use butt joints, glue and screw but i am a hack carpenter
4) i nailed little metal furniture feet to mine
5) some here will say CAT 5 (which i used in mine) but i think 16g wire is fine too
6) i used acousta stuff

If you put spikes on the bottom of your BIBs you may scratch up your floor when moving them. Sometimes i think about adding handles on the sides to help move them. When i do move them, i hug them close and hump them around into position.

Enjoy them!
