        Next the picture frame solid cherry trim to get the measure of the stack up of cleats and baffles/rear panels to flush up to the trim. I'm sure I'll have to trim the cleats individually for a fair fit.

            Sanded. Hot and humid today. Should have had Kevin K make these.

              Back panels. Not as hard as anticipated. The baffles have a 1/8" edge gap.

              Backs need a bit of edge adjustment for a uniform visual gap.

                I think that's about it until I get the kit.

                  Looking really nice!

                  I like the creativity of using two thicknesses to make the side panels There's some clever work going on!

                  While waiting for backordered woofers, i built these simple Adirondack lawn chairs from plans on the internet.

                    Those chairs look nice. Pine? Did you seal them?

                    I couldn't find any decent 1 by treated lumber. This is Menard's select pine. Radiata farm grown pine from NZ. Very nice, very pricey. Looks like Douglas fir. I have a product Penofin Marine Oil Wood Finish that can be applied with a garden sprayer and wiped off. My kind of finish. I will update after finish, super damp here at present.

                  Kit arrived today, from the MI speaker source. All top quality stuff. Large gauge twisted pair wiring, Solen woofer cap and Cebo tweeter caps as recommended. Back to work soon.

                  Documentation includes some clear color photos of the interior of Mr. Bagby's original pair, and a detailed baffle layout to duplicate the original look.

                    Dig, your cabs look great, and your Adirondack chairs do too. I have a pair of them, along with a dual seat, on my back patio. I love those chairs. Are you going to run a sub with the Continuum? Glenn.

                      Thanks. I've wanted a pair of those chairs for years.

                      I will use the Continuums in my PC 2.1 system. That has a PE 8" 250 watt DSP kit built sub. I can easily manipulate that sub out of the sound so I can hear them full range. I have several sets of 2 way speakers from Quarks to Zingers that I rotate in for the PC sound.

                      I might set them up temporarily in my living room, but I have a sub there too.

                    So why, I asked myself, do they sell this stuff only in gallons, no quarts? Well, this job took about 3/4 of a gallon. Jeez.

                      Did it just soak it all in? You sprayed it, right? They look great, comfortable to sit in?

                        I used a little pump up garden sprayer. Chairs were on a plastic dropcloth. The sprayer kind of splatter sprayed and some did run off, but not that much. I wiped them down with a cotton diaper that was damp but not soaked at the conclusion. So, most of the oil did soak in.
                        They are comfortable for their simple flat design. Norm Abrams has a design that pretty much requires a band saw for a curved back and seat. I don't have a band saw.
