  • Kevin, those look astonishingly good!
    The last two pics really highlight the curve on the front facet area. Those things look good at any angle.

      Thanks Tom! Yea, it's hard to fully capture the curved facets with the camera. The veneer is doing a good job of camouflaging them also. Up close and personal, it's much easier to see.

  • Kevin, absolutely gorgeous.

    Confession: By far, the hardest part of this build for me was picking the veneer. I looked at many different species and reached out to several friends for their opinions, you guys know who you are and thanks again for letting me bounce all the different choices off you. It's difficult, if not impossible to cater to all the different individual's taste in one veneer species. So, it was either a matter of going with the current trend, which at the moment is greys or looking for something really unique and letting the character of the wood overcome individuals color preferences. I feel I found a unique enough lot of veneer to appeal to most and hope it does well in the raffle Rick plans for Jeff's family. On to the veneer work.

IMO, the veneer needs to be as flat as possible for good book matches. You can buy softeners or you can make your own. Found a recipe online a couple of years ago, it has worked well for me. 6 parts distilled water, 3 parts denatured alchohol, 1 part glycerin.
    Here in California, we can no longer get (buy) Denatured Alcohol.

      Wow, that's crazy. Why was it banned? Since you can't purchase it there, easiest solution would be to buy a pre-made softener.

    California has banned many chemicals and substances, there are so many things that are no longer allowed. I mean like all the good solvents are gone, no longer readily accessible, can't even get real mineral spirits anymore.

        when you say side what does that mean? 90 degree to the woofer, -90 degree to the radiator? center of the side horizontal/vertical - how far from the wall? looking to understand the measurement criteria.

            Taken a few inches from the left or right side of the cabinet so that the microphone is equidistant to both the woofer and PR. This gives a good summation of the outputs. Here are the front and rear curves taken nearfield.
