    Im in the process of putting on the gloss finish coat. I've been listening to them a couple weeks so finishing was delayed :D
    Do you have the cabinets finished? I'm really curious to see how these turned out.

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!

    These are great looking speakers!

    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.

    iCloud Photo Sharing lets you share just the photos you want with just the people you choose.

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

    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.

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