    Here is the Mother Load, @Wolf! I would have mentioned it sooner, since I know you've been looking for some time now (as have I, off and on), but I only just now found it.
    I did get one of the 1/2" MLCS bits on sale, apparently closeout. It's a 1/4" shaft, but does suffice. I have top-bearings I can use together with rabbet bits to do what you have pictured, but that's not really what I have in mind. A slot cutter would work as these under-rabbets will, but I still want that under-chamfer or reverse-cove.

    Most of the manufacturers of these style bits are making them to be used with solid composites for under mounted sinks and what not. Freud has a large list, as does Festool, but the prices are CRAZY!

        For some reason the forum keeps failing to take any of my uploaded pics so im just adding in more progress with a shared iCloud Photo stream. Weblink can be viewed by any devices with web access.

        Posted my quick router jig pic. Before and after of flattening the baffles.

        Also have the baffle cut/shaped/sanded on one unit. Currently just being held on by a few wooden dowels I'll be using for the glue up to keep everything aligned.

          MLCS used to have a 1/2" for $30, but it's NLA.

            Updated the photo stream in the top post. Veneered tops and bottoms. Next up need to veneer the front baffles this week as well.

            Hoping to have these completely finished in the next two weeks. Should be cutting holes this weekend then spraying lacquer the following weekend.

              Where did you buy Mass Loaded Vinyl? The only places I have found that sell small rolls still cost about $18 to ship.

                Pictures uploaded! Veneered the first baffle. Was worried about the round over as its my first veneer job but it came out great! Need to sand off excess glue and get the second one prepped tonight

                Veneered the round over by making forms from expandable foam then clamping those with pressure. Worked nicely.

                @djkest, ill have to look for the receipt. I was able to order it by the foot. I think like 10sq ft shipped was 15-20 bucks.

                Also, my SI HT18 sub came in last week :D. That will be going in a 15-20sq ft LLT

                FYI as well, the veneer softener from joethewoodworker is amazing. My raw bubinga veneer couldn't bend a 10 inch radius with crackling. After the softener the round over was total cake... To make it more extreme, the excess veneer that had to be trimmed from the sides got squished down over a sharp edge 90 degrees... With the exception of a 1" spot it made the 90 degree bend without failing. Blown away.

                          Any further information on the mass-loaded vinyl? I have always liked the look of a black line at the top and bottom, like you did.
                          These are great looking speakers!

                              What are the benefits of sand filling the enclosure? I have never seen this done before and was just curious.

                                I believe it's supposed to help deaden any cabinet resonance. I recall Lynn Olsen using it in his Ariel design many years ago for the same reason. Looking at this project though, I'd be surprised if there was much resonance or vibration with the bracing that's being used. Beautiful project thus far - hope to see some updates soon!
