Very sharply edited tutorial on cutting side ports. Tom handheld the camera for the entire shoot of 7.50 minutes which I trimmed to under 2 minutes. I find watching and hearing routers offensive so I cut this out - it's pretty obvious what you do anyway :)

I find it easier to cut the SSP just before the top and back is glued on, but with the kerfings installed. I bind my ports and it's easier to clean up the inside that way.

You say potatoes.... I'm not clever enough to bind the port like you do Chuck! You'd need to do it your way if you are binding the hole so to speak :)
