- Amp6 Basic Portable Enclosure Posted on: July 26, 2007
Woody had enclosed his Amp6 that I soldered for him into a plastic enclosure. After having wood case envy, he asked me if I could make a case for his Amp6 out of wood, that was a bit smaller than mine. So I did. See the pictures for my results. The wood is Anigre and an unidentifed species of wood that I salvaged off a pallet from work. 2 coats of high gloss Tung Oil is the finish.
