I just used a router and a board clamped down as an edge guide.

Sorry for the late reply. I don’t remember getting a notification about these posts…

You can use any caulk but this is the acoustic caulk I used… Franklin International 2892 Sound Sealant, 28-Ounce, Green

Just make a test rabbet joint a a scrap piece of acrylic to test the perfect depth. I think 1/16" extra for the caulk will probably get you very close.

Here is where I am:

And the plan:

What’s the minimum inside depth for the enclosure to be closed, and being able to reach the entire cutting area with the router? Is 48" enough? Thanks.

45" is the minimum inside dimension. You will need more if your dust shoe hose sticks out past the front of the router mount.
