I would like to hear a HD215 and see how it compares to the  existing Martin /ASS  215 cabinets,..what price do u reckon it works out per box to build Heathrow,asuming each box has 2x pd,etc...im guessing,with timber,fittings,drivers,paints,etc,must come out at around 450 per box?.
Be seeing you.

wood 1.75 sheets of 8x4 birch - 62
4 big handles - 16
4 100mm castors - 20
pack or 100 m6 t-nuts - 3
m6 60mm bolts - 5
nails for nail gun - 8
glue - 3.5
paint - unknown
2 pd 154 - 200
4 corners - 2
 
= 320
 
cant say anything about paint cos i havent ordered any yet...
 
it would take one weekend to make 4 hd215's if everything was set up...
 
my big mistake was not getting everything cut at b and q... if u trust the guy or slip him a tip i think they can cut it much better and quicker then most of us could.  make the 5 sectional bit using one 600mm jig.
 
id also add money in there for a grill..
 
if you intend to make more then 4 at one go id say forget about rebating things etc unless u use some sort or cnc
 
a good nail gun seems worth the cost too.
 
b and q birch ply is sh*t... its got loads of voids in it plus the guy at the shp thinks only the first couple of laminates r bich.  who knows!
 
havent added speakons to the cost either as im still undecided on model.

im sure the next 4 i build will be built much quicker... as i will plan things better and not create extra work for myself as ive done up to this point...but hey it keeps me out of trouble i suppose.
 
i just wanna add that i spent money on tools etc as well...if i was starting out again id seriously consider finding a cheap cnc place or cabinet maker as it probably would have worked out cheaper... but the feeling of ownership u get when u build ur own things is abit like having kids...u get attached to them as u know how much hassle went into making them. 
 
also i think we cabs the more u build at once the better as things get cheaper...  i think 4 is a nice number to attempt.

 If u can get them completed for around 350 Heathrow,thats a brilliant figure,i know that doesnt include time and effort,but the nearest pro.built "named" cabinet  would be at least 1200,and the Martin or ASS considerably more (double that).
 I would love a listen to the finished 215 cabinet,i have heard single hd15s,but the twin version is allways going to excel,and a stack of 2 hd215 per side gives you a 4ft x 4ft approx mouth.
Be seeing you.

thats why diy cabs are great...  i wanted to get someone else to build them at first but for 8 hd215s you will save alot of money building it yourself

ive finally used my table mounted router in anger and have finally knocked up the box bit of the cab...  took some pics when i was offering the panels up to check they all fit, which they do thankfully!
 
all the panels....
 
dado channels
 
 
no glue or screws... only the ribbon clamps holding it together... still quiet strong though
 
 
 
 
i still think making 4 in a batch will save me time evem though it doesnt seem like it at the moment!  i think next i'm gonna try and work on the curve and baffle sections or maybe route out all the handle cut outs

cut 50 mitred sections for the curve on staurday and now have started glueing them together....  its a shame i only have 8 variable angle clamps as it means i have to make 4 curves at a time.
 
my plan is to glue 2 sections together then add another and another until i have the full 5 pieces.
