no previous part Part 1 of Replacement Speaker Boxes series Part 2: Clamps are off... »

Take two speaker boxes that are worse for wear, and kind of water logged. Then say, “heck they aren’t exactly cheap speakers either. ummmmmmm” Mission speakers. Remove guts of both speakers. Put in plasted container and seal. Turn round and now say… “ummm now what?... followed by a gulp, ”...and he wants two… hmmmm “

Okay we first made a router jig so we can do some nice daedo to fit the speakers into and then finish the cross cut table sled for cutting the panels… after we have biscult jointed them together.

This is another joint project with Hayden we had fun on the coffin so thought it would be cool on this one too… But apparently he isn’t qualified. (internal joke) Anyway he measured, and I biscuit joined three panels which will be cut for the four sides, tops and bottoms… we will do the backs seperately. (I think) We will then routher the daedo’s and then cut down and then mitre and then glue and then cut more and then hoefully sand which means things are going as planned.

So the clamps are off and we set mitre saw to 45 degree. We even check to see if it is true… and well we can get any closer, but believe it or not the table saw does not quiet get to it 44.5 – 44.75 so close but yet so far. Not close enough for a trim final cut. That will be annoying…

Anyway, we routered the daedo’s and rabbits on the all pieces & cut the back piece of the speaker boxes on the table sled. We even upgraded the router jig so the fence will swing and be adjustable.

Dry run fit… not to bad…

We then did a dry fit and is pretty close on speaker needs a bit more work done to it. But once all glued up and clamped tight they are going to look pretty nice.

Well we will see how the rest goes in a couple of days….

That’s cool. What a great idea.
