Default Are you looking for suggestions for enclosure shapes?

Here's a neat site that has patterns--that's patterns--for some of the more common polyhedra. You can cut your polyhedron from a scale sized copy of your choice of patterns.

Warning, this could lead to stuff like:

My rhombicosidodecahedron is bigger than yours

Hilarious. But you know, Bose, mine is still bigger than yours.

I emailed the guy who runs the site, and he gave me this link to help determine the angles for cutting the wood.

Well, I'm not going to sink down to your level, because my mommy said mine was biggest of them all. I was interested in the Truncated tetrahedron, seems like it is most possible to create a loudspeaker from this and has that B&W tapered tube kind of thing going on. I'm saving this website for when I'm finished my 'theatre in a home' project. Build some nice stereo speakers.
