    This evenings tasks.
    1. glued on the top and edge trim
    2. rounded over the MDF that I cut to fit driver side
    3. started final sanding with 220 grit

    I heaved this thing on a scale. Empty it's coming in at 98 Lbs. With the driver and amp, it'll be around 165 Lbs. Gonna need a dolly to get it in the living room

    I laid the front baffle in the panel and it's sitting too low. I added a 1/2 inch sheet of plywood for a spacer. The baffle sitting out proud looks better

    Work finished the last couple days. Panel molding installed and rough sanded the oak lumber. Started working on the front. There is limited space on this panel, so I made the styles just big enough to be equal distance on all four sides to the round over on the baffle

    Putting in the upper and lower styles on three sides. It will have the same inset panels as the end of the entertainment center I built several years ago. It pained me to cut bracing out for the plate amp, but with inch and a half thick side walls, I'm not concerned about flexing. I'm still racking my brain on how to finish the front.

    That is going to be a heavy beast!

    I would have done veneer,but I like your idea of full panels better. Those walls are going to be thick!

    I got the go ahead from the lovely wife to build another sub. The only qualification is that it needs to match our entertainment center. I ordered a flat pack for the 18 inch ultimax for core of the project. The last couple days was spent putting the flat pack together. Today I'm working on wrapping the core with 3/4 oak. It's going to be a heavy sucker. I'm still working out how I want to finish the front, I'm toying with the idea of wrapping the front cover with vinyl carbon fiber.
