Default will someone build a pair of boxes for me

ok....first of all...i understand that this is a do it yourself website...

BUT i am heading back to my dorms, i dont have the space, tools, or materials to build my own boxes...

SO i am asking to see if there are any reliable box builders on here that would let me pay them to build me the boxes to make this project

http://www.zaphaudio.com/audio-speaker18.html

i wouldnt want the wood painted/coated/finished, i just want the boxes built according to the enclosure plans specifications

please dont ban me because i am not building my own box

can someone give me a quote

I sent you an email but here is another suggestion.

John used an 8 inch board for these. Since the board is already the right width for most of the panels its just a matter of cutting pieces of the correct length. You could probably have a lumber yard do this for you. Often they are not accurate but since there are no long rips the odds are better that they will do it right. As long as the opposing sides are the same size you should be ok. John even mentions that if the dimensions are off abit it should still be ok. A jig saw to do the internal chamfers will cost you about $20-$30. If you cant get your hands on a router it wont be the end of the world although roundovers do improve the response abit. It looks to me like this driver doesn't have to be counter sunk.

Go to google, and do a search for "[place where you live] cabinet makers". Then call a couple. I found a really good local place that did big sub cabinets for only a nominal fee above cost of materials (he liked building speakers).

With shipping costs, there is almost no way to beat local craftsmen, and you get the added benefit of quality work.

Or buy a partsexpress cabinet and make it work for you.
