    Awesome job man, I envy your woodworking/finishing skills. I'm getting there...

    Today I was able to wrap up the PC speakers. I even got to enjoy the first pair for awhile as I finished up the second pair. I have moved one pair to my bedroom to get a little use out of them before I gift them.;)


    A few photos???

    I used weatherstripping tape as the seal for the rear panel. I had left myself 1/16" room for the gasket.


    The terminal cups had a gasket attatched to them.


    I attempted to use velcro to hold the cap in place, but it was too big!....I ended up hot glueing to the bottom of the enclosure.

    If you want no shine, I'd say you made the right choice.

    Could you just ship those Imperials to me? Just for a closer look? Heh heh

    They look great.

    The 70"s era Realistics I have here featured an oiled walnut finish. Nothing is in stone yet, but I am leaning towards a simple untinted Danish oil finish. No shine. No sheen. All walnut. All the time.

    Thoughts on that???

    The end of my PC speaker build is in sight!!! I have a few more holes to drill and then assemble them. The most of the woodwork is completed now.

    I started the morning out with a flush trim bit to trim the baffles to match the box sides.


    Then I used a roundover bit to round the edges on the baffle and back edge of the cabinet.



    I had already sanded the parts at 80 grit. I sanded today with 120, then, 220, and finally 320 grit before applying the danish oil. In the next two pics the surfaces are flooded and soaking up the oil.





    After wiping the parts down with a lint free paper towel I hung them to cure.




    Im hoping I can just about wrap these up tomorrow....although...I want to put furniture wax on them in a few days.

    I DID finish with a clear Danish oil. They look insanely rich. I'll probably give it a few days and then use a walnut colored Briwax on them.

    Here are youtube links concerning the Lepai 2.1 amp. The first one shows some measurements being taken and another shows the PE ad.

    Heh heh

    The walnut costs around $5 per board foot here. Not outrageous, but they ain't exactly giving it away.

    The rest.....the"details", well......that only costs time!

    That flush mount rear panel was so easy to do I doubt. I'll ever do anything else in the future. Easy as pie!
