I've done as above as much as possible - the tubes are a liitle close together for my complete satisfaction BUT this was dictated by the PCB I used (Menno van der Venne BBB70100).
40mm holes around the EL34s which plug thru into a PCB.
No bases on the boxes as yet hence them sitting on the timber to allow air flow from underneath.
EL34s in triode mode giving about 40 watts Output Power.
Kudos to your amp! Why haven't I seen it in the gallery?

It was 42 for a few days (outside) at my place last summer, hence the fan, to move any stagnant air and to keep other elements like top plates cooler.
I have no a/c except opening the doors and hoping the breeze is onshore.
Shore breezes, ahhh how I miss them!
Make a reminder all of you, if you're going to actually use fans, get the biggest one you can design for, the bigger the better airflow for the lowest RPM..
I need to get back on a shoreline
