I had this idea a bit ago. I wanted to build a rig that was enclosed in what looks like a guitar cabinet(just speakers/no amp). I hadn't seen anything like this....so why not?

This was the original concept(not to scale)

I didn't really want to mount the rad directly to the case, so I used two L brackets, then cut a groove to attach it to the plate.

I'm pretty happy with it.

It's not perfect, but for a amateur wood worker, with limited tools(basically a small table saw, and cordless drill.....I think it came out pretty good.
