      A little more progress. I finally bit the bullet and finished up the second veneer covering in the heat we've had.

        Using a large deep-well socket makes for a decent roller for applying the veneer.

          One coat down, probably 4 more to go. One looks darker than the other but it is because of the lighting in the room.

                  Can't wait to see those drivers in the cabinets. Will you be bringing them to any DIY events or at least MWAF next year?

                    Matt, How did you flush trim the beveled edges? I'm wondering if you used an X-Acto knife or some other type of razor blade.

                      Thanks guys! They aren't perfect by any means but I am still beyond happy with them.

                      Not very likely, this whole system is going to be more or less set up permanently in my listening room

                      I used a normal replaceable razor blade by hand and just took my time, replacing it with a new one after 5-6 edges. This was the best method I could come up with after using two other types of hand/veneer saws. Something else I learned with these is that hand sanding with a sanding block is much nicer in the end than trying to be careful with a sander, which is all I have used in the past.

                      Some of the edges could have been cleaner for sure. But it was all a learning process.

                        More progress. Cabinets are finished after 4 coats. I got one loaded up and ready for measurements, the other will happen soon. I have also started on the stands which should go relatively quick.

                          The thick plates are the bases and the thinner plates are the tops. These will also be veneered. The PVC will be filled with sand and everything will be held together with 1/4"-20 all thread.

                              Hmm..

                              This is promising.

                                Nice anechoic chamber. So the graph above was in the chamber? Any gating? I'd love to see some detailed pics about the chamber so we could diy one...
