CNC router – box for the electronics

Initially my intention was to place the driver board and power supply in a standalone box. But there is quite some spare room at the back of the router because I originally extended the base for the diagonal support beams.
And this room is enclosed at 3 sides by the V-slot beams, so it’s very easy to mount a box there.

For the backside of the box I’m going to mill of plate of 3mm black plexiglass with holes for the mill power socket, mains socket and parallel port connector.
