Box Building Day!!!!!!
Alot of people could build a box, BUT usually go to us professionals in the field. The biggest PROBLEM is the general person out there simply does not have the proffesional tools or knowledge to build a box. You could grab the ole skill saw, hammer, some nails, tape measure, etc. and hope like hell to get close, and take all day. Some of the shops out there got a table saw, and some tools in a corner to build some boxes, and they will get a heck of a lot closer. I am much lazier, Ive invested the $40,000 or so in woodworking tools, because time is money. The faster i can do it (and do it correctly), the better off my time is to make a living. So you "Do It Yourselfers", this may be the day for you!!! Ive been asked several times to have a general box building type day. This is your chance to build your own box, and use the best tools in the industry to make life easier. And to hang out with some of your buddies.
I need to know who all would be interested if i do this.
Here is what I am willing to do.
1) Give use of the shop area and woodroom to all who is interested.
2) I will not build your box, but will give you guidance.
3) Any materials used, you will need to pay me for.
4) be happy to talk with anyone on a project or future project they are considering
5) Want to install your own radio, speakers, etc. I will guide you through it, sell you parts you will need (just above cost) and will let you use my shop tools.
I ask anyone participating to clean up after themselves, Make sure you return any tools you are using, and to respect the shop, myself, and others that may be here.
Anyone working on their projects at the shop will be asked to sign a waiver (especially wood room). That they take ALL risks and we ARE NOT LIABLE for ANYTHING.
I am willing to do this because i have met some pretty good people here, and its a chance for alot of the dfw crowd to meet one another, as well as myself meeting some others. I would prefer to do a saturday, maybe 10am-4pm at latest. If we decide on a day, the retail front will be closed, and the bays will be open for dfw stangs people only. If all goes smooth, then maybe i can put on another every so often.
PLEASE respond to this post all that are interested so i can guage putting this on. I also welcome any others in the industry to come on out, and help some of the guys on this site who like or prefer to do their own installs. This will be a day for us to group together and have a little fun, SO if you come out, no BASHING on anyones installs or you will be asked to LEAVE. We all have to start learning somehow.
