So I am looking at building two 30" wide tuba 30's and have to get my budget approved before I go ahead with the build (and buy the plans which would solve this question). I am wondering how much wood does the tuba 30 30" wide dual 12's need? (I assume it's still 1/2 baltic birch) Specific dimensions of the pieces would help me see what the prices are locally!! Thanks!!

:cowboy:

I went thru 5 60x60 sheets for my 21" T30's with some extra left over. Didn't keep a count for when I built my 28" ones. I would guess I used maybe 8 or 9 but can't really remember.

Where I am at the Baltic Birch runs about 50.00 a sheet.

Also, you may reconsider going 30" as it can be difficult with a lot of doorways not being big enough. My 28" barely squeeze in most.

Cheers.

Those specific dimensions are enough to figure out how to assemble them, so I doubt anyone would post them for you.

Drop the $15 for the single plans, or $100 for the CD. Even if your budget is tight, you won't regret it.

A 30" wide tuba 30 might have trouble going through some doors. You might want to consider that if you do indoor gigs.

I know the tuba 60 plan specifically calls for 'about' three 4x8 sheets of Baltic Birch so I was just wondering if the tuba 30 plans have similar language. Like said before, the board/council needs to approve a budget before I can spend their money. Aka I can't buy the plans until I know how much to budget for wood. :wall:

Plans are 14.95. Compared to the cost of materials that's rather insignificant. Just get the plans yourself and do a cutsheet. Bill the plans later, if you find that important.

Because of the ability to build in different widths, it impossible to tell you how much you'll need without running all the dimensions through Cutlist to come up with a total. But, based on earlier posts, I'd say to shoot high and figure 10 or even 12 sheets.....hell, put 12 in the budget....if you end up needing less, you'll look like a hero. List your location in your profile and maybe others can send you to the right place to buy your BB plywood. Some places in the country it's $50 a sheet....where I live it's $27 or less.
