    In my build, I did not leave the top on the enclosure when I cut the angle for the front - I probably should have - but I had no trouble on my table saw with a composite blade, tilted to about 15 degrees. I clamped the box to the sliding guide on the table. I did have to de-burr the cut since the composite blade caused a bit of melting of the aluminum. I then cut the top of the box to match.

    A band saw would be a much better approach for this sort of work, though.

    I think that your composite blade was the issue. I used a blade for cutting aluminium and had no issues with melting aluminium.
    The cut is very clean.

    Keeping the top in the enclosure makes sure that the top has exactly the same dimensions as the rest of the enclosure. And the edge is also at the right angle.

    But glad it worked out well for you.

    3d printed Mini Boombox

    I built a mini boombox for my son with a Raspberry Pi Zero and a Pimoroni amp. The case is 3d printed.

    Thank You. My little son is thrilled too, he hears his goodnight story with it every evening.

    Sorry, I completely overlooked the questions.
    I hope the answers are not too late.

    Input pens are included with the touchscreens, so operation works very well. I chose this display for cost reasons. If you have a little more budget, a bigger display is certainly not wrong.

    I work in a metal company with CNC machines. So I was able to make the front panel myself.

    Pikeyd is used to convert the rotary encoder's pulses into keyboard commands for volume up and down. And I use LMS tools in a Python script to query the player status (play, pause, stop, etc.) from the LMS in order to control the LEDs.

    Ok, that is great! It looks very good!

    Ah, thank you!
    I build a player in a plastic Smartipi enclosure which has no real place for a rotary encoder. But most of the time I am three meters away from it, so I am using an Ikea Symfonisk (E1744) ZigBee controller together with Home Assistant to control the piCorePlayer.
