Applying tolex to a plywood case
« on: December 14, 2018, 04:50:31 AM »
Hi all

I've built a plywood box for a mic/instrument preamp, covered the inside in copper shielding, and I want to apply tolex to it to finish it off. It's not huge, much smaller than the average speaker cabinet, more akin to a small amplifier head really.

I've never backed anything in tolex before, so I wondered if anyone with experience might offer some insight as it has a couple of holes in it that might make it difficult.  Don't want to rush it and potentially waste a lot of time and effort.

There's a small vent on the top for the valves, and a large hole cut in the back for a metal panel which screws on.  Can anyone with experience suggest the way they would tackle it?

Cheers!
