Love that your design looks so at home in your hifi stack. Great project and thanks for sharing the process and planning.

Great job. I think it is necessary to use a stainless steel hexagon screw for the front panel.

nice build, love this :heart_eyes:

or countersink screw head in sheet steel.

That’s a great build! How’d you make your audio rack?

It is simple. Just made of wooden boards, threaded rods M16, nuts and washers.

Why not use magnets to keep the metal plate in place?

It is not metal :smile_cat:

A great job !!!
