          Wow looking good, less then two weeks, do you feel the pressure? I have to finish my boxes this week also, I just hope it gets as warm as the weatherman suggest here in Iowa.

            I do feel the pressure and I think the sides are going to take some time to assemble. Some of the stuff that's left is the kind of stuff that makes me real nervous that I'm going to mess up something major. I did let one of the side panels float up off the bearing on the router table while flush trimming the veneer and put a gouge in it. Fortunately the panels are slightly oversize so I could trim off the end again. I'll just have to be very careful gluing that side on the box since there's not much room for error anymore.

                        I've got the same saw. How come you have shiny aluminum surfaces? Did you polish the table?

                          It's a great saw but the top gets no special care. I've taken a stone to it on occasion when my wife has run something abrasive through it and roughed up the surface but that really hasn't changed the surface color which has always been aluminum. I've managed to do this whole build with this saw, a Bosch router table and a jig saw.

                            Spent the day trimming the solid trim flush with the veneer and sanding on the panels until my hands gave out. Two big panels left to do tomorrow. I glued one of the sides on tonight.

                              WOW, I could not get a corner to look that good even if it was a CNC mitered lap joint.

                              Very Nice :applause:

                                More progress. The sides are on the woofer boxes and I've started trimming the cherry trim. I made templates for the tweeter and mid rebates and done the mids. I ran into a snag on the tweeter rebates in that the tweeters are metric and have a smaller radius corner than my 1/2" router bit will cut. The tweeter won't just drop in and I can't see a quick way to fix it so I ordered a smaller radius top bearing bit. The tweeters may not be flush mounted in time for Grinnell.
