Hey all,
Anyone know of plans available for a diy 1x12?
Thanks!

I don't have plans for you, but I recently finished my own first attempt - literally just cut HT 2x12 dimensions in half and went at it. Nothing fancy, no dovetail, etc - just screws and dowels, and screws and wood glue for the supports. 3/4 Baltic birch from home depot, hardware from amprepairparts.com. All in under $100. My buddy who helped me and I are in the wine biz, so we gave ourselves a little nod on the back panels.

Not fancy and perfectly to spec, but looks pretty good and most importantly sounds fantastic. I tried to upload photo, not sure if it worked or not. Good luck!

Looks pretty good to me man. HD do the cuts for you? What are the basic dimensions— about 15x15x12 or so I’m guessing?

Don't have it in front of me but yes, I believe I did 15x13x13. I was lucky to use my buddy's circular saw, so I didn't have to use the depot for cutting, although I'm sure if you had all your dimensions ready and employee who cared, they'd cut it, no problem.

For the supports just 1x2 pine strips, dimensions as above less 3/4 inch on each side, obviously. And, the baffle, same story, dimensions adjusted to fit in accordingly.

I think if you want to have it cut at the store and go in with all your dimensions and cut needs thought out and ready to go you could have it cut pretty easily?
