As I was looking at the dry-fitted cabinets I realised something was wrong with the brace, here's a picture to illustrate it.

Another discovery I made just now is that this is the deciSize Mar-Kel70T and that I'm the first person in the world building those. Seems like Dave "tricked" me into beta-building for him again ;) Well, nothing wrong with that. The difference is that this cabinet is ~4l smaller than the standard size Mar-Kel70T. The sonic differences will be that it wont go as low in the bass. But it will sound better than my 12mm particle board cabinet anyways since 18mm birchply is a lot better than 12mm particle board.
When it comes to what I've done today I've been glueing the port spacers onto the outsides of the cabinets. I've finished three of four sides and will do the last one tomorrow. Then I will start thinking of good way of attaching the back panel to the bottom panel. It's very important that I get the angles right at exactly 90 degrees, otherwise the whole cabinet will get weird.
