Buttons and Pots and things

Hi, I am complete beginner so apologies in advance.
I am just working through various projects and tutorials and was wondering what the best way was to add like a control panel, i.e with my buttons and potentiometers and such. Should i out them on some perfboard and attach like that or should I attach directly to totem panels, or are there better ways?


buttons, switches and potentiometers require exact size hole, so you will need some kind of panel to do so. This can be also done using Totem boards.

You can take a look at other makers projects in Personal projects category. They have done similar things:
