  • C-Note build with veneered box

    I recently finished a pair of C-Notes and I'm proud of the way they turned out so I thought I'd share. I veneered the boxes with unbacked etimoe from and used Heatlock glue to attach it. Big thanks to Tom Zarbo - I learned at lot from his videos on youtube and that gave me some confidence to get into veneer. I first posted this on Reddit so most of my pictures are in a build album that I hope I attached to the post, but otherwise I'll post some of the pictures here.

    They came out beautiful! The veneer is gorgeous. I'd have loved it if my first veneer job came out that well.

        VERY nice photo-essay.
        Sharp pics, and very informative captions. A joy to read (and great looking speakers).

            Great build. Beautiful.

            Looking at veneering our first set of C-Notes today as well. Actually, already took notes from your build log over at Reddit before ordering my veneer. I have some Mappa Burl from which has been flattened and is ready to work with (bargain bin pieces). I will get pics as it comes together.
