I would have done a whole lot of things different if I was still back in the US. Here in Spain (At least where I live), not sure about the rest of Europe, wood of the quality that you can pick up at your regular Home Depot, is nowhere to be seen. I have yet to see a full sheet of plywood or a solid piece of any wood other than Eucalyptus or Olive wood. All the pine in the stores is mostly finger-jointed pieces/parts that is straight only under the climate control of the store, and as soon as you bring it away from there it starts to warp, and for that, you pay about quadruple what you would pay in the US. You can imagine what any good piece of wood would run. Hence my choice of MDF, cheaper, more durable, doesnt warp, glues well, machines well (No Grain) and good sound qualities.

The outside dimensions are roughly 23.5" x 23.5" x 23.5" , and inside 19" x 19" x 19". The same for the second box that I will continue on with soon.
