Plywood case for Arc2 Podium with Microphone Mounts

About this plywood case for the Arc2 with Microphone Mounts

Getting a versatile and strong plywood box took a lot of design thought and a clever method of making.

It has interlocking joints and is glued and screwed for strength. It has no padding or foam. Plywood is naturally slightly softer than the metal parts, so it protects the parts and does not need any padding or foam. We cut the parts ourselves on our computer controlled machine. We use plywood made from hardwood, so the boxes are strong and yet relatively lightweight. It has 2 wheels to make it easier to transport.

The handles are cut into the plywood which makes it easier to move without protruding handles that would increase the overall size. Also we save time and money not needing to buy handles and attach them.

Background- how did this box come about?

Here in our workshop, we use our CNC machine to make plywood boxes and trolleys. This helps make our production more efficient and keeps the pulpit parts safe while we are making and storing them. 

In 2015, Brian Houston from Hillsong Church made a book tour of the USA (to promote his book ‘Live Love Lead’.) We made plywood boxes to hold his preaching equipment. The boxes were efficient to make, and the plywood protected the contents with out the need for extra foam or padding.

Some months later it occurred to us that this might be a way to make reasonable priced boxes for our customers that need to bump their churches in and out every Sunday. 

In our normal style, what started as a modest goal turned into an ambitious project as we produced prototype after prototype, endlessly improving the humble plywood box. Each plywood part needed fulfil 2 functions. Each joint needed to be strong and also efficient to computer cut and assemble.

We fought for every millimetre to make it as small and lightweight as possible. Finally 28 prototypes later, we had the optimum result. During the process we reduced the size by 32% and the weight by 24%.

We think that by putting in a lot of design effort, the product can be better and more efficient to make. As a result for your church, you get an optimum podium case for the price.
