the putty to iner and exterior surface of fibre pots.After dry fibre pots,repeat the same process 3 times more.Surface will become tough and smooth.

Place 2 big pieces as opposite direction.Screw on those pieces from their sides on the MDF.Don’t prefer screw which has a large diameter.
P.S: I coudn’t staple the fibre pots as opposite direction I combine them 2 big pieces.

Specify places to place 2 sockets on the MDF.After that, make holes in these
places.Pass cables through holes and combine one cable with one sockets.
To activate the other socket, wire up socket which you combined with cable.
