    Lots of good ideas here. My mind is spinning with ideas for my next build. Your template process is excellent. The only down side that I can think of is that this would not work if the contour radius of the driver flange fell below the radius of the router base. But I would imagine that this problem, if it came up with a particular driver flange, could be solved by installing a custom router base. Keep up the good work. That driver flange fits like a glove!!

      Thanks Javad. How long are the Jasper Jig pins?

                Javad, I see you tested the kerfing with plywood before using the solid poplar. What is your opinion of the two? Does the poplar kerf better, worse or indifferent compared to plywood?

                        Ok, let’s get back to it, enough ********!

                        Vlog detailing the doweling and clamping process

                        https://youtu.be/4dimHqwhx2Y

                        Back glued on, time to do some flush trimming... Had an issue that the back was square and didn’t match the 3 degree taper of the sides, a normal flush bit but won’t work due to the angle.

                        Simple solution is a flush trim bit and some 3/4” MDF, I set the bit depth to just under 3/4”, a small 1/64” lip will be easily sanded off. (BTW got this Bosc Router for $79, really nice unit)





                        Top and bottom were easily flush trimmed with a 1/4” bit





                        Now ready for some CLD! I know I said I was going to use the silicone, and it would work well, but I decided I didn’t want to deal with squeeze out on this so here we have two 2x2 sheets of 40 durometer sorbothane



                        Rough cut to size



                        Glue applied to enclosure



                        Doweled top and bottom pieces about to be trimmed



                        Trimming in my new 14” band saw



                        Sorbothane glued to enclosure



                        Wood glue applied to wood and more adhesive applied to sorbothane, I did a glue up of both ends at the same time





                        Clamp up



                        Nice tight joints even on the kerfed areas which tend not to be perfectly flat after bending





                        More to come thanks!

                          Ok so I pulled the first top/bottom CLD glue up out of the clamps, and I glued up the second enclosure. BTW this is what a loaded up bar clamp is supposed to look like =)



                          This is what I started with after the glue dried. Notice the masking tape over the kerfs, since it’s common for the flush cut bit to skim the surface, this helps protect the relatively thin top layer of the kerf



                          Spiral cut up cut bit by CMT, really nice cuts like a dream



                          And after the flush cut





                          Tape off





                          I did some quick initial sanding with 80 grit, I’ll be sanding the kerfs by hand as to not sand too deep, finally starting to look like a speaker!

                            Little more done tonight, I started by sanding the kerfed areas, this was a little nerve racking as I didn’t want to sand through, after using this technique below by hand I finally built up some confidence and carefully sanded it with 150 grit in my RO sander, that went well. I was able to almost completely sand out the kerfs but I’m not sure I want to go all the way, see images below



                            After finish sanding the whole enclosure with 220, I applied a 1/2” roundover to all top, back and bottom edges



                            Trick with a 1/4” shank bit, bury it in the collet to prevent any flex of the shaft for a smoother cut.



                            Barely any burning or marks, full speed and full pass, ready for a quick sand with 220







                            Left edge after sanding, right before





                            All sanded and ready for the next step!







                            Thanks!

                              Man! The patterns between sapwood and heartwood on the top half of that speaker are gorgeous! Can't wait to see how those finish up. Keep up the good work! Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
