This was a great project that started with finding a quality set of speakers on CL for cheap.
The case is made of maple plywood that I found at my local homecenter. I have been burned buying plywood from there before but this was a good piece and at the right price.
The face frame is walnut and the two drawer fronts are from a piece of wood I picked up at a garage sale.
I decided late into the project that I would like some small legs for the case. This led to some tricky joinery, because the drawers had already been framed and were a very tight squeeze.
I am sure there is an easier way to do this, but this was what I came up with (a fun problem to solve).
I ended up plunge routing through the bottom of the case, and used a dowel with a nail in the end to mark the legs for the corresponding hole.
This seemed to work well, and I believe will be a strong joint for a long time to come. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
The speaker stands are maple ply,mahogany, and walnut. Straight forward construction.
Hope you like it.
