Forgive the question, but what exactly is "military grade" plywood? I have made several boxes for 45s and albums out of Baltic Birch plywood, the 1/2" thick has at least 11 layers, it is very dense and durable, but I've never heard of military grade. Thanks.

Apparently it's just super dense hard plywood that is used for things in the military. I don't really know more than that.

Okay, so basically, Baltic Birch, and that is what the military uses. Got it, thanks.

Oh, and great job on the construction of the box. If you ever want to look for "road case" hardware, check out a company in Southern California, Reliable Hardware, all their stuff is made in the USA.

If you say so.

i like the sliding mechanism design. Brilliant!

I had a DJ business for years and making storage/display equipment (we still used CD's and tapes!) was part of the fun. Extra nice kudo for the kickstand. Great work.

That is badass!

What synths are you using?

I am just learning about modern synths after finally admitting that things other than the Juno and Moog exist heheh.

Appears to be the Elecktron OctaTrack and Analog Four (both older versions)
