    Re: Carmody Tarkus 3-Way in a one-piece curved cabinet

    FANTASTIC LOOKING!!!! My first time veneering I was going to use contact cement and learned that you can with paper backed veneers. But, you should use some the is designed for it. I looked into using regular veneer and was a little scared too. Props to you for going for it. I love the curved design. And the grain is fantastic. I really hope you don't have any issues with the adhesive. Simply Awesome.

      Does anyone know the depth of the cabinet?


      Sorry if this info has already been posted--I didn't see it listed on the sketch diagrams.

      thanks!

            Exterior depth is 14.5", 13.0" internal using 3/4" MDF. I can probably upload the SketchUp file if you want the exact dimensions for everything.

            I'm liking these speakers more every day. They are just fantastic for big home theater movies like Tron and Star Trek, paired with an IB setup for 10-40Hz. Also pretty good for music, no sub needed.

            Thanks for all the positive comments, I really appreciate them. :D

              I was just going through and fixing all the picture links that were broken due to an ISP change, and thought I might as well put up a few new ones of my "remodeled" Tarkus(es). The Bubinga was beautiful but proved to be a little too wild for our house, and I really wanted round-overs on the baffles.

              So I ended up stripping off the veneer and re-veneering with maple. Then, rabbeting a 7/8" groove along each curved side of the baffles and backs. From there I inlaid some ripped maple strips, then flush-trimed the strips, and finally rounded them over with a 3/4" bit. After that it was two coats of natural shellac and some wax and buffing.

              I still listen to these every day and really like them a lot.

                  The Maple is spectacular.

                            Very nice work Cowtown. They look great -- high level of craftsmanship is obvious.

                              Hi
                              Cool looking speaker, do you have the full set of the external box dimensions?
