I spent some time in the wood shop this evening and I got the mirror box done. It turned out really well. This time, I used screws (and later glue when the final assembly occurs) instead of the pocket holes on the 12.5" scope.
The back view. The top hole will be used for the fan controls. The two bottom holes are for the fans that will blow across the mirror face.
Bottom view. The central hole is for the back fan. The three larger holes are for ventilation.
View with the mirror. It is slowly coming together!
Next up is finishing up the secondary ring and then the rocker/box ground board.
