As most who know me would know, I like to keep my shed neat & tidy, so the idea of building a self-contained electronics workstation is very appealing. Plus I'm often fixing other peoples stuff so the portability helps.

Note: See Steps 28 & 29 for STL 3D Printing files, Cutting List & Detail drawings.

Step 1: Cut Plywood Sheet

The whole box was built out of 1x sheet (2400x1200) 7mm ply plus a small sheet of 12mm ply for the front/work area. The thin 7mm ply made constructing the box difficult in terms of attaching hinges & using very short screws but it is worth it to keep the overall weight down in my opinion.

<p>Any hardware store with a lamp/light section. Also, any furniture supply catalog.</p>

Playfully conceived and skillfully crafted , kudos!
<p>Store bought stuff: Inferior.</p><p>Soundwave workstation: Superior.</p>
