My first reaction was happiness that you have all your fingers!

Your skills remind me of my dad's with a piece of sheet metal in his hands. He could work magic as a tinsmith.

Chisel on!!

Very nice.  I have to admit that I like the newer, floating design, more than the intricate feet.

It looks like the speakers would swivel, though.  Is there something that fixes it in place?

I also am much more happy with this design.  To prevent it from swivelling you just screw the base on to the pipe until it is solid.  It is very tight as you can get a lot of leverage when spinning the foot into position.

In twenty years of woodworking I've had to get stitches twice.  I still have all my fingers  :D

Where does the design one from?  Looks like a derivative of a pipe.

Are you asking about the design of the speaker, or the foot?  The speaker is a design by Soundblab on Youtube.  I designed the foot myself.

What are the drivers? Who helped you with the crossovers?

Looks beautiful. Reminds me of my audiophysics Tempo 25s.

Your Purple Heart laminations remind me of the leg assemblies of my own workbench. Here's a shot during finishing (those are PH plugs concealing screws, too):

All Parts Express stuff:  Woofer: Tang Band W5-1135SMF,  Full Range: Fountek FE85, Tweeter: Dayton ND25FA
I did all the crossover work myself.  Watch some videos online and follow the instructions in the plans.  Soundblab on Youtube designed the speaker and he sells really easy to follow plans.
