lever it off gently with a screw driver. when it comes off, you will wonder why you had so much trouble.

Tried that without much success so far :-(. Took out the only screws that were in it, got a little of the bottom off & the rest stubbornly held together! After 1am decided to give up & wait for a clear head :lol:

Having a quick break from cleaning up the shed, hopefully I can attack it again this afternoon. If all else fails, it will fit fairly well as is :-) :-)

Tempted to leave the casing on - its black & will blend in........


Really? What brand is it? All the ones I've dealt with just pop off easily.

Went mad this arvo with the tools and got the sides basically done. I'm still debating how to mount the monitor, knowing how dodgy my routing skills are, not sure if I'm comfortable cutting out the hole straight enough to match the creen edge :-(. Any routing hints anyone can give me? :-(

Well done mate!

As for routing, guides, lots of guides is all I can suggest.

i had it easy with my monitor cutout... used a pattern router bit, and a lasercut template... i farked up a piece of wood when i cut it, as the router got hungry and went munching...

Out early this morning before the sun hit, cut the base, top and back panels - with a hand saw no less...how manly am I? :lol:

Going to assemble these today, amd work out the size of the monitor and speaker panels needed. Think I'll buy a new small piece of timber for that, as I don't really want to slim down the huge bit of MDF I have now for it
