Hey everyone,

I have started work on my chest box and have a question for the experts here on the boards. I've looked at the chest box samples and want to make sure I have everything right before I continue.

My question is, are there any set dimensions of what size the white trim boxes should be, and placement of them? Or do I just do what looks 'right'?

Thanks!

That may depend on the size of the chest box that you have. If you have a TK-560 kit then you may want to enlarge these dims slightly.
Since the square buttons at the top are typically 1" square, I usually make the white "pinstripe" boxes at 2 1/2 to 2 9/16" wide.

But again depending on the size of the box you have, do what looks right over sticking to any specific dimensions. It all needs to look proportional to itself or it just looks wrong IMO.
