    Now I need to square the edge to the cabinet, for both the front of the cab and the top - the upper and lower edges of the curve.

    I need a base that I can clamp to the cabinet, which is square to the cabinet.

    The stationary base is okay and I am off to a good start on the router's sliding base, but it needs more stability.

    Now the router's sliding base is stable.

    All that remains is to rub waxed paper on the sliding surfaces on the movable base and the stationary base so the router glides smoothly across the cabinet as it cuts.

      Place the sliding base on the stationary base.

      Plunge and slide across the cabinet.

      I thought I got a shot of the same procedure, routing across the top edge, but I guess I forgot.

      I also ran the baffles through the planer to match the thickness of the triple-stack bendable plywood. I just shaved a little thickness off the backside of the front baffles.

        You made that bendable top piece routing look easy....
        And it was, once you had the proper jigs in place!

              Those are some serious clamps, bet they didn't come cheap!

              It's hard to believe how quick you are moving through these, I'm feeling really really slow now.

                Thanks, Kevin! I always think that I move way too darned slow on my projects. At the end of each day, I think, "I know I was busy all day, but is that all I got done"?

                I've got a couple more pictures. I'll post them tomorrow.

                  I just rocked the cabinet and rolled through the curve to trim the baffle flush with the sides.

                    Now to trim the top flush with the back and the bottom edge of the baffle flush with the cabinet bottom. I already started, before I got the idea to stop and get a picture.

                    Rather than plunge all the way down to the surface, I rest the bit on a thin piece of cardboard. After I route, I will have just a little bit to sand flush.

                      Interesting method to trim the top flush.
                      In retrospect, it's obvious since the top is not a 90 degree angle.
                      I learn something from every post you make.

                      The 3 pair look incredible!

                        Thanks, Don! We all help each other in this hobby.

                        I wanted to use up some automotive primer I had in the garage. I did. It's gone. So, from this point, I will spray/sand/spray/sand some water based polyurethane, until I fill the grain and get the surfaces smooth. Then I will paint them black.

                          I know you are super thorough in your planning - what will you do for feet?

                            Look at my second post. I intend to make something like that. I don't have a lathe, so I spin some stock in the drill press and sand it as it spins. Well, here is the photo again, so you don't have to flip a few pages back to see it. The base also gives additional stability to counteract the rearward lean of the cabinets.

                              Make America grateful again..... Jerry Garcia would have been proud of that many speakers in one place.
