Step 1: Laminating (glueing)
I used 3 pieces of scrap wood I had lying around. I glued and clamped them together so that they would be one piece.
I used way too much glue here. Next time I'll use less glue and it'll require less cleanup.
Step 2: Cutting to Sizes
I cut 4 peaces out of the larger block.
Each one was cut to a 1/2 inch.
Step 3: Slots for the Top and Bottom
I cut 1/4 inch deep slots into the top and bottom. For the plastic top and bottom.
Step 4: Cutting the 45s
The measurements of the sides don't really matter as long as both short sides and both long sides are equal.
Step 5: Cutting for the Panel Mount Connectors
I traced all the connectors.
Then used a combination of the chisel and dremel to make the holes.

Step 6: Glueing the Box Up
Make sure you don't forget to put the top and bottom in like I did.
I used tape to hold all the sides together.
Step 7: Final Box Prep & Clear Coat
I cut the top off the box. I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it, so let me know if there is a better way.
I used hot glue to keep the plastic from sliding around. The plastic was from the bottom of an Aldis bag and was too thin for the 1/4 inch grove.
I put two clear coats of poly, sanding once in between.
Step 8: Finishing Up
I mounted all the connectors and screwed down the electronics.
I added some rgb LEDs and loaded retropi.
