Day 2 of build

Wanted a hole in the brace, but did not have a large enough bit, so used the lathe instead.
By listening to the change in sound it is possible to stop the cut before breaking through. Smile





















Leaving a nice hole ready to be rounded over


Smaller parts assembled on bench


Forming inside of angled handle, just thought it would look neater than square and could not think that it would damage the sound






After seeing CSG's neat way of mounting speakers thought that I would give it a go.










Will put more information up as soon as I get a chance.

VERY impressive build pic quality, i like the neat & tidy workshop says alot about the builder for a start. Love the lathe cutout method old school style. I'm sure those cabs would lok and sound awesome be creative don't just cover them with black paint it will hide all the quality workmanship

I am fortunate to have a Dad that still enjoys woodwork after spending years as a builder / joiner.
Each time I work with him I learn something Smile

He has build up the tools over many years. I am confident with most of them, just dont have the years experience that he has got.

Looks very nice indeed. I see you use the same position and shape of the handles we used in our MKII prototypes.
 
Which 15" and 1" are you going to use? I assume you use B&C 8" PE21 for Mykey XT8 horn?
 
Best regards,

Thanks for the design Walt, looking forward to hearing them running.

Drivers as follows:
1" = B&C DE500 on TD245 horn
8" = B&C PE21 + Mykeys horn
15" = B&C 15NW76

Hopefully get more time to build this Sunday.

Thanks for the compliments to everyone else that has posted.

yeah looking good. 

has that table saw of yours got running gear on it? good to see youve cut the holes in the baffle before building the cab - the insomnia ones have skewed holes for the driver to sit on and i dont see it happening! LOL

running gear, you mean like Nike or Addidas ?

One small table, but no good for a 8 foot sheet at which point I become the sliding table extension Smile

Was really useful to have an accurate fence to work with for making repeat cuts and ripping ply for internals to 485mm.
