The wooden box will be nearly a 10 inch cube. Parts used in these pics:

3 - 1/4 x 5" bolts with washers/nuts. Snug them up until the gasket seats well but don't overtighten and collapse the turbine housing.
3 - 3.5" pieces of 3/16" PVC for spacers. Adjust length according to your motor/gasket thickness.
1 - piece of an old electrostatic computer mat for the gasket between wood and fan. Anything will work but be sure the fan doesn't suck air from inside the box.
1 - 1 1/4" PVC coupler for air intake, epoxied into a 2" bore in the wood. The I.D. of this size coupler is a little bigger than the fan intake.
