    A pretty humble one, actually. Just a basic compressor and paint gun, and a vacuum wall.

    A simple paint gun and compressor is a great investment for anyone who plans on doing a buncha painting. Massively better results than rattle cans.

    I used a 3/4" bit for the holes/recesses and a 15/16" :eek: for facing off the edges of the walls/braces.

    Yeah, them's some big ol' bits.

    Jaw Drop... :eek: That's just ******. Oh and thank you for knowing how to spell Voila. I've been reading over at Diymobilaudio lately and I can't count the rediculous number of "walla"s I've seen lol.

    I also simultaneously made a coaster. My best one ever. It's wicked round, and supports beverages quite well.

    Well, I wasn't able to film it (no camera man available), so here are some pix instead.


    Here's a pic of a sacrificial piece of mdf placed down on the rotary table. Note the pin in the middle. Strips of double sided tape are laid down, believe it or not this is all that's required to hold the piece down during machining (no really, very common machinist practice)...




    Here's I'm ready to cut the woofer recess. Note how the pin is now poking through a pre-drilled hole. This is how I ensure it's centered on the rotary table...




    Then after dialing in the correct distance away from center, here I'm cutting the woofer recess...




    Now the woofer hole...




    Then I had to remove the piece, lay down fresh double-sided tape, and reposition the baffle such that it's center about the tweeter location. Here's the tweeter recess being cut...




    And the tweeter hole being cut...




    Voila...

    Can videos be embedded in this forum?

    If not, I'll link to youtube.
