    Yea, the baffles aren't permanently mounted yet. They still need to be textured and a final coat of paint. I'll definitely be veneering prior to gluing the baffle down for good; I can't imagine trying to veneer into a corner. I've got enough gray hair as it is.

    I've gotten several votes for the Camphor. I'm gonna have to do that I think.

    I vote Camphor. I think it picks up both the black from the baffle and the color of the woofer cones. ++++

    Wow. Every time I see a build thread of yours it depresses me. Hell I thought I was big stuff because I did my last cabinets with a hardwood front baffle.:rolleyes: Seriously those are great looking cabinets. I put my vote in for the Makore sans stain and a coat of tung oil or something. I think it would "pop" with the black baffle.

    A little paint / contrast does the lines good..



    Considering the following veneers:
    Bosse

    Makore

    Sapele (wow)

    Camphor (another wow)

    Having a hard time deciding; they're all generally the same price, all of these come in a width that I think I could work with.. the colors are complimentary to the cone color of the B4N....and... I hate this.

    Progress make Mark happy..

    Aside from a few snafus with the router, this evening went pretty well. Here's where I landed:







    A little TLC with some bondo and sand paper throughout this coming week, and these will be ready for some skin. Still haven't made up my mind on that part. Good times.

    Your powered ONS's are still one of my favorite builds. The proportions of those speakers striking.

    Over the last couple of weeks I managed to get these things wrapped. This weekend I'll be flush trimming edges and cutting out the baffle location.



    The ol' door knock test on the sides gives a nice solid "tink", and a sore knuckle. These things are hefty. (sweet.)
