    Cab sides constructed with double sided floor tile tape.

    Next glue the cabs together minus the 1/2" MDF pieces for tops and bottoms, then cut and fit them.

    The baffle is solid maple, woofer glued in. The rest is PSA veneer over particle board. More info in Jeff Bagby's Quark thread.

    Nice djg !!
    what was your process you used for the inset baffles ?
    looks like veneer...is that right ?

    I made these a while ago, Quarks to look like Continuums. I actually bought some #2 black screws to add for cosmetics, but never put them in. Seemed like multiple chances to screw up a nice project.

    Thanks Mike. They are called the "Drabants". I haven't done a write up on them as I just finished voicing them this week. Unfortunately they use the NLA RS28A tweeters.

    I wonder how hard it would be to put threaded inserts in the back of the baffle and cleats on the inside and screw the baffle on from "inside " the cabinet. If that makes sense.
    Not that hard - just takes a little planning. Either a removable back to reach the internal fasteners or reach through the woofer hole, provided the woofer doesn't rear mount! I'm working on a project right now that is attaching the baffle just like this.

    I’ve never heard the continuum’s and I’m sure they sound fantastic as Jeff designed them. But every time I see pictures my woodworkers OCD kicks in over all the ugly screw heads on the baffle. Is it just me? My woodworking journey started off with furniture and I’ve always taken the approach that fasteners should be out of sight whenever possible. Really not trying to criticize anyone’s work, but I could never enjoy listening to them as I’d be staring at those screw heads thinking about how to make them go away. It pains me when I see an otherwise beautiful build with a nice hardwood baffle marred by a bunch of ugly screws. Anyone else bothered by this or am I just being ridiculous?

    It's not just you. I don't like the look of all those fasteners either. This is a picture of a project I just completed and I think the four cap head screws holding my baffle on is too much

    It's "tradition". The solid maple cabinet of the original Continuum copied the look of the British BBC speakers. Good news: You can build yours however you wish.

    Check these out. I knew i couldn't approach this level of perfection, so I looked for another style that still has the signature screwed on baffles, found the Harbeth.
