    When i started making enclosures there were some tutorials out there that were very helpful. However, they skipped over some info that would've been helpful like cutting plexi glass, plexi thicknesses, etc. They also required special vents or parts. Here is a simple how to with no special parts or pieces. Everything apart from the silicone is available at a local hardware store.

    thank you i realize i left out certain things but thats because they are more optional like the magnets i use or the fact that i glue the bolts on my hinges

    the gasket thing took a while to get right so they wouldn't peel off. you really have to rough up the plexi with a brush

    Looks great; thanks for the videos.

    About how much did it cost you to make each one?

    buying materials on 4 came out to $120.00 or so so i'd say about $30.00

    Sweet. That's pretty cheap considering how nice the end product is.
