Mmmmm. I can feel the butthurt from the unfused extension cord (SE cable) already. It tastes like chocolate chip cookies.

Nice work btw.

That was the only redeeming quality about FPE. If they had been AL, it would be a truly nightmarish product.

Why do you have to even put a piece of wood, it's a block wall?

Cuz thats how its done, man. I usually do a wider piece of plywood so there is room for telco/cable company, but its just how a lot of guys are taught.

The only thing i dont like is the black plywood. To be done correctly, it should be industrial gray.
