    Thank you. The screwed on front and back grew on me over time. Seeing the various BBC speakers the Continuum is based on helped. And I really liked Tyger23's pair in 3 different wood species.

    Beautiful! I may be in the minority, along with you, but I love the screwed baffle/ rear, and the natural, more organic finish. Let the grain revel in it's patterned glory. These will possess a very elegant aesthetic when you're ready to pump the magic through them. I'm sitting here pondering what I would play for the first track, or album, and Joni Mitchell landed in my mind. Classy, tasteful elegance. Glenn.

    Thanks. There's still ample opportunity to scrap those baffles. That countersink tool was really helpful.

    This is an adjustable countersink with changeable countersink bits. It's used in aircraft metal work. the cage adjusts up and down. The bit extends when you push it. Hopefully I'll get some uniform countersinks on my baffles. I've sort of stalled, worrying about making a mistake on the baffles.

    The cherry baffles are unforgiving of drilling errors. I made 1/8" hardboard templates with poster board contact cemented on. I will lay out the holes on the template and proceed.

    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.

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

    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.
