DIY Eurorack Console Case – The Wooden Side Panels, 1st Step

Quick status update on my console case. I dived a bit into woodworking and started routing the wooden side panels

If you want to read the full story, here are all the posts:

The works on wooden side panels have started. First time ever using a proper router, amazing tool. Does exactly what I needed. I routed the shape of the panels out of 24mm multiplex wood. This was a step I had a lot of respect for, as I never handled a router before. So I started with an easy straight line and then step by step raised the bar a bit higher. There are two edges where I need to add some wood again, but some dues you have to pay when learning.
Next step will be drilling, sanding, staining the wood and then finishing with oil. I will keep you updated.

Here are some impressions from my first experiences with woodworking and some shots off the drilled bottom and rear panels.

DIY Eurorack: Side Panels 3U and 6U

This is actually a simple exercise but if you are not a handyman and have the right tools it might get annoying. This is why I am trying to organise a groupbuy for this side panels.

This is what it is all about. A prototype of a 3U side panel for fixing the rails on a rack (still missing the drillings for fixing). Sure, you can fix the rails directly on the rack, but using the panels is way more elegant.
