    1. He says right off that this is useful for prototyping permanent cabinets, so this isn’t supposed to be a replacement but a cheapy starting point.

      I started with a pine box, which probably cost $20, and screwed wood screws into it, which was a decent starting point. You need a table saw to do this, though.

  3. I did a similar DIY cardboard project for my 6U eurorack with the intent to prototype for wood cheeks. This was over a year ago. I’m still using my (free) cardboard cheeks with no issues at all, and they are holding up quite nicely. I thought they would fall apart by now. Nope! One of these days maybe I’ll spend money on a case…. Or buy more modules instead? Hmmmm…

    1. Hi JB,

      I’d like to build a 6U cardboard eurorack myself. Can you share sketches/measurements for yours?
      (and yes you are going to buy new modules instead)

  4. Great video, such an easy idea just to make your initial outlay that little big less.
