We’re remodeling part of our church and my pastor asked if I could make a case for pre-amps to match the wood beams and other wood and this is what I came up with.
My first project for someone other than myself or my mother so it was a new experience working on the design and specifics with someone. The general design was pretty much left up to me except for required height, depth and width for the amps.
Built out of white pine to match wood in the area, I added hand holds on the sides and sliders on the bottom to make moving it easier. Decided to make mortises in the sides and tenons for the top and bottom and corner blocks plus cross bracing to keep it from racking and made recesses in the side for them to make it a little more visually appealing (shown in the last picture). I used biscuits to attach the cross braces to the rest of the case which worked well. Also used them to help align the several glueups I had to do, each part of the case is made from 4 separate boards, which I did my best to match to hide the joints.
Finished with 3 coats of pecan stain and 4 coats of wipe-on poly.
Thanks for looking guys!
