This build log is going to be mostly pictures and situations I’ve run into that are specific to my build. It’s going to be a log of what NOT to do, I hope it saves you all a lot of headaches .
So first off, do not use this “other” kind of punched angle from Home Depot. You’ll spend most of your day cutting and grinding to get it to fit. While I did finally get it all to match up, it was a serious pain in the ass.
Lesson: Make sure you get the punched angle with ONLY 3/8 holes.
My box is off on one side, I believe this is because the foam panel was bowed a bit. I cut it on a table saw to exact measurements but I think the inconsistencies of it being bowed are showing. I’m not sure what to do here yet since I’ve already taped it all up. I may just re-do it later but I’m progressing to the motherboard section for now.
Lesson: Don’t build the foam box until you’re done with the frame. This will allow you to test fit each section of glue-up.
