Intro to Fabrication: Enclosures
I really liked the look of the vintage/analog electronics that were shown on the slides, and decided to model mine after a radio like this.
The back panel was modeled after this photo:
For the front, I had a speaker grill dominating the left side of the panel, and on the right, 5 switches along with 2 potentiometers.
The box itself was from Amazon, and was a planter box:
I needed some way to anchor the hardware so that users could play around with them. I grabbed a piece of cardboard and pushed the pieces through. This ended up working pretty darn well.
All put together, the front panel doesn’t quite fit — theres gaps on the top and bottom.
Newly cut border to the rescue:
Next step was to glue the paper and frames down to the box
Haphazard glue job to make sure the hardware withstands the clumsy hands of users!
