    Hey folks,

    I need to build 36+ in-ceiling speaker boxes for a new home.  I started off manually cutting the rectangles out of 4x8s, but as you can imagine it’s monotonous.  I’m planning on building an Lr2, with the question of when, not if.

    Would I have any issues cutting various rectangles (13×19, 13×5, 20×5) out of a 4×8?  If I design to cut-through all the way so in the end I have separate pieces, would these pieces slide around as each one is finished getting cut?  Would the recommendation be not cut-through everywhere and just punch them out afterward?

    Any other concerns you can imagine?  Will lines be straight assuming a good workbench?

    Thanks

    It will be slower than using a saw by a significant amount. And yes, they will move around so you could use tabs then cut through the tabs or break them then sand them flush.

    This would be a job for a table saw.

    Table saw.

    Here is a video I think you will find extremely interesting considering your project. Prepare to be blown away.
