NOTE: it is strongly recommended that you review all of this instructible and have a thorough understanding of the materials list and how all the materials come together. i also recommend that you source any materials that interface directly with routed parts, prior to beginning this project, and verify the affected dimensions with calipers, and make any changes if necessary to the files before sending them off to be cut. failure to do so will be quite co$tly.
you will also need access to:
a table saw with a tilting arbor, rip fence, and a good quality miter gauge. (i recommend the
Kreg KMS7102 precision miter gauge)
a drill press and assorted bits 1/8" to 1/2"
plus a good assortment of common hand tools to include but perhaps not limited to a hammer, punch, crescent wrenches, socket wrenches, assorted pliers and vise grips.
common sense safety should be observed at all times, especially for those less experienced.
safety glasses are a must, a mask should be worn while cutting foamboard products on the table saw, and gloves are also recommended when working with the aluminum faced foamboard products as the edges can be very sharp.
this instructable is not recommended for beginners, and i would rate it a 4 out of 5 as far as difficulty is concerned. you should be experienced with the use of table saws and their associated guides, gauges, fences and safety features, and have a personality that works to perfection or precision in all aspects of a project if you desire a satisfactory result.
estimated cost for this project: $2400
