    I don't get on the board often anymore so as any of you could imagine, I'm in complete disbelief to see that Jeff passed from coronavirus. Horrible, horrible news.
    Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.

      In the course of working on the cabinet I realized that the midrange cutout for flush mounting might be too difficult for some builders. To help with this there's the option of a CNC cut baffle. I also ran some curves today to see how the surface mounted variation measures. Here are the curves for both mountings - ignore the low end differences as these were taken on different days and the speaker location is close to the same location but not exact.

      The first graph is on-axis and the second one is 30 degrees off-axis horizontally.

        Making some progress. This is my take on Rick's new design to honor Jeff. I'll be donating this pair of cabinets for the fundraiser Rick is planning, all proceeds will go to Jeff's wife and son. Hoping to have the cabinets finished up by end of next weekend. Pictures were right after the first coat of lacquer this evening, additional coats will happen tomorrow. Tried to make the cabinets somewhat unique and incorporated curved facets on the sides. The veneer is disguising it that more than anticipated. Will start posting full build details tomorrow.

          Those things are just plain stunning!
          Really, really good choice of veneer too; the character it adds is significant.

          It's a really nice thing you and Rick are doing, and it looks like it will all-around be something truly special. Hopefully it reinforces to Miss Bagby and her son some inkling of an idea of how much we all thought of Jeff.

            Thanks Tom! I hope it gives Christine and her son some emotional support to know how much he meant to the community. Jeff's contributions were invaluable.

          great veneer work -- book matched with perfect symmetry and invisible seams. You gotta tell us the secrets to those seams!

            Thanks! Will do my best to share as many tips as possible while revealing the build details.

          Outstanding cabinets/veneer, and the FR graph too. This is very tantalizing. Especially considering the price being mentioned.

            Thank you Sir! I'm looking forward to hearing them, although that's probably still a ways out. Maybe in the next week or so.

          Seeing Kevin Kendrick's work reminds me of why I don't build my own cabinets...lol

          The kit is ready to go - all I have to is create a write-up and Meniscus is ready to publish. I also have a speaker being built per the kit plans and it will be sent out for 3rd party testing.

            Beautiful. You lowered and truncated the tweeter compared to the simple box plan location.

              Thanks! Yes, lowered the mid 1/2", truncated the tweeter and lowered it 3/4". Not sure how much of a difference it will make on the FR with Rick's original crossovers. If it requires some adjustments for this raffle pair, he'll take care of it.
