    I think I may have wiped off the oil a little too soon, I finished a piece of oak with Teak oil and it's got just the right gloss to it. If there's a warm day in the next few months I may put on another coat of oil and let it set for more than 15 minutes before wiping it off, otherwise it'll have to wait until spring.

    Those look great. I cant tell if it's the lighting, but the the teak oil on the poplar end up turning out a greyish/blackish grain color? If it's not just a trick of the light, thats pretty much exactly the look I am wanting for the baffles for my K6.5 project.
    I stained the wood with a Minwax Ebony stain before finishing with the teak oil, I'd attribute the color to the stain more than the teak oil. On my monitor the color looks accurate, although I did use a remote flash for more dramatic shadows, the colors are pretty close.

        Do you have a pair of Overnight Sensations? I built a pair of OS-like speakers w/ ND20FB in 1/2" MDF and a well braced 3/4" MDF TMM pair w/ Vifa DQ25 and the bass does not sound right no matter the tuning or stuffing. I also have a pair of TM's with ND140-8 and ND20FB and they are much better. I think I will replace the B4N's with these. I also have some ND105-8's and will eventually build a TMM's with them.
