    Great build djg. How thick is the veneer on the baffle and the enclosure. PSA seems to work pretty good. Any special tips for first time user's?

    Minwax has a varnish that's not Poly based, only Sherwin Williams stocks it. I have some left from a bed frame I made, I'm going to use it. Satin.

    Put the stain on, too wet to handle. I'll get some decent pics after finishing. This will take a while. Most of the info on the web on mahogany finish was about deep dark red using lots of products. This is a light stain, I like it.

    I've been wanting to make a retro speaker and also build one of Wolf's projects. This seemed to click.

    I'm thrilled you chose my design for a build, djg. I also hope they suit you well and make you smile!
    Later,

    I'm definitely hooked on PSA veneer. I did both boxes in a few hours. Right now, some Minwax Ipswich pine stain I used on my new window jams looks really nice on a sample. I'm not sure how shiny I want to go.

    Desktop, LOL. Yeah, they fit in the theme of Wolf's name of "Zingers", a large engine stuffed into a silly small chassis. We'll see how they work in that venue. I may need to back my chair up a bit.

    Thank Wolf for the inspiration and design. I know I have changed his box layout, especially the recessed baffle. Done purely for looks. I'm pondering how to do a foam grill that will clear the woofer surround.

    You have made short, quick work of this build.
    Looks great in mahogany with the recessed black face, very vintage, very Original Large Advent-ish.

    BTW - that is a heck of a desk top build...a bit larger than most you see (mine are Heliums)

    Wow those look great djg. Can't wait to see how the grain pops with some finish on it. You work fast!

    Excellent work, you are on the home stretch. Watco for the finish?

    Two. I still have to cut holes for the ports and terminal cups, and the front rim lumber has some thickness variation requiring sanding.
