Re: Homemade navigation housing

Ritchard,
I would be using 1/2" board, rabbet the corners, use a strong glue bond and temp fasten with stainless steel screws (recess). Has to be secure and somewhat watertight. I never worked with the material before and if it does not take a strong glue bond then it most likely will not work as I don't want the look of all the screws and I will need to round all the corners. A simple box is becoming more complicated.
