Mike Lundy for cabinets and completed speakers
« on: 18 Jun 2019, 05:15 pm »
I am going to sticky this one so that it is easy to find.

Mike Lundy has been more than just a GR Research customer. Mike has been building cabinets for our customers for quite some time. He also offers our kits in a fully assembled and ready to play format. We've recommend our customers to Mike often and he has never disappointed. He does great work and delivers timely.

Here is some recent show coverage on Mike and his company Uilleam Audio. https://parttimeaudiophile.com/2019/06/05/uilleam-audio-lone-star-audio-fest-2019/

Shoot Mike a message if there is something that you are interested in. Here is his e-mail address: mlundy57@cox.net

And if Mike has built something for you then this thread is a good place to post pictures of his work and to give feedback.

Here are pics of some of my builds:

NX-Otica monitors with dual servo subs. These are veneered in curly figured cherry.











X-LS Encores in a solid figured ambrosia maple over an MDF core








LGK 1.0 in crotch walnut





and in walnut burl







I'll get some more pics up by this weekend.

Whoa, these look awesome.  Would love to hear your thoughts once you receive your speakers.

Mike, how do you veneer around edges and corners like that?  Not that I plan on trying it, but it would be nice to know how you do it.  Beautiful work.

Alan,

I use a veneer with a 22.2mil bubble free backer. This is thicker than the normal 10mil backer which makes it easier to roll around the edge. I also use veneer softener to make the veneer as pliable as possible.

The smaller the radius of the roundover, the harder it is to roll smoothly without cracking. I find a 3/4" radius easiest to work with.

Then I use Heat Lock glue and an iron to apply the veneer. PeterJ has a good YouTube video on how to do this.

Yes. The first one might go to Lone Star this year.

...or even prefab kits?

Peter is working on flatpacks, not sure where he's at in the process.
Hey Mike,

I do have a full time job. Speaker building is evenings and weekends with time out for honey-do lists  :lol: Which is why I have a backlog.

As pretty as those pictures are the speakers look even better in real life.  Mike does great work.

He has a great sounding room at the Lone Star Audio Fest each year, too.
