At Arachnid Cabinets we are committed to using only the best materials and best construction methods.



  • 18mm Baltic Birch is the ultimate choice of ply for high end guitar and bass cabs.  Its rigid properties, virtually void free construction and hardness make it ideal for the cabinets of working class musicians. 

  • Why is being void free so important?  MDF is porous as well as cheaper "Birch" ply's found at your big box hardware stores.  Over the years, porous materials have been explored for vibration damping and isolation. Due to the non-uniformity in the structure, porous materials fail to predict the vibration energy absorption and the associated oscillation behavior, as well as other the mechanical properties.  Porous materials can cause infiltration and exfiltration of air.  Simply put, this is air that can escape or enter the structure that is NOT part of the design.

  • The dovetail joint is quite strong because of how the pins and tails got shaped. Since the tails and pins fit snugly together, separating them will be almost impossible if you glue them together. For this reason, this joint gets often utilized in constructing boxes like jewelry boxes, cabinets, drawers, and many other pieces of furniture that necessitate strength. 

  • The snug fit of the dovetail, again, helps create the air tight construction.  This tightness is integral and eliminating infiltration and exfiltration through the joinery.  Again, air that hasn't been purposely designed into the system
