    Re: Statement monitors towers.

    That will be it for now:

    I still need to paint the un-veneered sides. But will have to wait until I get access to a compressor and a bigger space to work...

        What size T-nuts did you use to mount the drivers to the baffle?
        Thanks, and Happy New Year to you.. Phil

          Used 3/16" the tweeter's mounting holes needed to be enlarged a little bit.

          Happy new year to you and everyone else!

                  If the tariffs aren't too steep and with the shipping being "international", there are some good internet dealers that offer many varieties. Joe Woodworker is one I see the guys here talk about:

                  http://www.joewoodworker.com

                  There's also Woodcraft and Rockler. I've been getting the PSA-backed veneer from Rockler for decades now and always get great results using that. It has a pressure sensitive adhesive applied to the back and it's very strong and long-lasting. Easy if you don't have the space or tools to do the glue-on methods, like using wood glue pressing or contact cement. I did my Azurites about, wow, 13 years ago now and the PSA veneer is still holding strong with no loss of adhesion on the edges or corners. A friend just bought them from me last year, so they're holding up quite well at his place too. I know shipping to Canada can be cost-prohibitive, but some of the US on-line vendors could be an option for you.

                        Unfortunately, law prohibits importing raw wood or it's derivatives. One of the only exceptions are loudspeakers.
                        So technically, we can't even import flat packs...
