The General Plan The general idea is to make this sonic T amp appear less fugly by transplanting it into a wooden/aluminium case. The case will be considerably larger then the original in order to accommodate the amps power pack which is normally external. The case will be 12mm KD Tasmanian oak all round bar the base which is MDF. The sides and front will be joined with blind dovetail joints while the back will use a box join style joint. The front panel will have a 186 x 50 inlay of aluminium on which the power LED and Volume/on knob will be mounted. This gives a solid base to bolt the volume control to as well as add a more modern look to the wooden design. The starting point of this project is the sides and front. They are cut from a plank of 12x65x2400 KD Tasmanian oak then marked up and place in a dovetail joint jig. Although dovetail joints can be done by hand using a saw and your teeth I have chosen the cheat way out in using a jig. The idea of the jig is to guide a standard plunge router to produce straight and uniform sized dovetail joints into the wood. PERFECT FIT!
