The pedestal box was made from 10 mm MDF. I used a paper template to mark and cut out the rounded edges. I didnt't install dividers or supports for the panels yet to make them exactly as I will need them when I know the measurements of the panels.

For the fire panel box I used 6 mm plywood. I installed wooden supports so that I could nail the parts together. The supports are placed 6 cm away from the top edge to have enough space to install the panels later.

To cover the rounded cut-outs I screwed a sheet of 0.5 mm aluminum onto the rounding using flat head screws. Predrilling is essential to prevent the MDF from splitting.

      In this version the measurement is 298 x 72 mm. But I after the rebuild of my pedestal I’m designing a new version.

    Hi Mickey,

    Did you install the dividers yet? I am curious what you used. My thought was to find some T-bars and then drill holes exactly where the panels would be placed. Dzus rails are quite expensive.

      No, I haven’t done this yet. I will do this when I have made some panels for the pedestal. The T-bar soluion sounds good. Use 3 or 4mm Aluminum so you can tap a M4 thread to it.

    Viel Dank erstmal, ohne deine Tutorial wäre ich jetzt wahrscheinlich noch bei Null…
    Ist es möglich das ganze alleine zu bauen, oder benötigt man da schon etwas hilfe?

    • Mickey says:

      Ich mache es z.B. allein. Ich bin aber auch noch bei den handwerklichen Themen. Da fühle ich mich noch zu Hause. Mal sehen, wie es wird, wenn die Elektronikthemen kommen. Insbesondere der Throttle macht mir richtig Angst. Aber man kann sich natürlich überall im Internet Hilfe holen, was sas Know How angeht. Insofern ist man ja nie wirklich allein.
