Hi Gary, welcome to the forum.

From this post: viewtopic.php?p=3428#p3428
Quote:
All the stuff for the 93's enclosure I picked up at home Depot.... 3/4" red oak sides, perforated aluminum sheeting and 1.5" x 1/8" aluminum stock for the "front panel".

I've also seen this material at Canadian Home Depot stores.
Cheers
