In regards to the grain on the waveguide, you are being way too picky, just like I would be :duh:.

No one is going to even notice that the grain goes a different direction. It looks so darn good having the grain in there that that's all people will see.

You really did do a nice job with the finish :thumb:

Thanks Greg, I really appreciate the words of encouragement. After the finish, you could not have been more right.  I'm completely happy with the way the inlay turned out along with the general finish of the cabinets.

And some random shots from this weekend. At this rate I should have them buttoned up by early 2118  :lol:











Early B.

Utter awesomeness.

Are you commenting on the great cabinets the OP has created here?

Thanks guys!!
I've been pretty slow with them but am really enjoying how they're coming out.


pdg540, I was complaining out my veneering in the waveguide earlier and Greg was talking me off the ledge   :D

Right on! Just wanted to be sure what product he was talking about.

Man, that looks great.

Thanks Danny, I really appreciate that. As do I really appreciate you putting this stuff out here for us.


And just because I want to. Some more pics.

Woo Hoo!



A close up of the linen I chose against the finished cabinet.



And the copper playing off the tones in the wood along with a little natural light behind the wave guide is pretty spectacular.

Flavo,

Those are just plain gorgeous to these eyes!!! Man you did a nice job.

When something looks this good in a high gloss you know the work is top notch.

Enjoy looking and listening to those wonderful speakers!

So what do we have over there in white with black rims?




flavo

Very much appreciated everyone. Really.
Wait until I show you all my fancy shop.  :lol:

I saw you were a Vette guy. This is my first American muscle car. I've always had little German stuff, but have had a burning for a 00-04 GT for a long time now. So I did it.
It's set up a bit aggressively for track instead of the around town driving it actually does. It's probably the stiffest street car I've ever been in. LOL
The "roots" style Eaton blower allows for instant on with the torque though  :thumb:
And I vinyl wrapped it. It's actually a light grey but it's nearly impossible to photograph with my phone and see that.

Does the width of the chamfer decrease from front to back or is that an optical illusion?


flavo

It does indeed. It has two different angles going on there.
Although not the easiest to see what's going on. This is how I set that up.

In this first pic, I've cut more off of the back of the cabinet base.


In this one, I'm cutting more of an angle in the front. The fence was there just to help my eye. Once the blade was up, the fence was moved out of the way.



flavo

Any reasons why this layout won't work?
I hope not as it's semi permanent at this point  :?

I think someone who knows what they're talking about  :lol: would say to take the center coil and turn it up on it's side. Then face it so it looks like it could roll back and forth between the other two.

They may be far enough away from each other not to matter though :dunno:.
