This is one of my speaker projects. It was my first attempt at veneering, edge inlay, and my first attempt at using a locking miter router bit. This was also the first real finishing job I ever did, with 16 layers of hand brushed lacquer. To add to that (this post is filled with firsts), this is also my first post here, and my first post on any woodworking site.
The veneer is a beautiful curly mahogany over 1 1/2 MDF for the baffle, and 3/4 MDF for the sides, top & bottom, internal braces, and back. The edge inlay is black walnut, procured from my buddy who helped me with the veneering. How awesome is it to have a buddy who will show you how to veneer, and give you some sexy walnut to boot? It was sealed with amber shellac then coated heavily with brushing lacquer. In retrospect, I wish I had used either a clear shellac or a darker inlay, as the inlay gets lost in the mahogany.
I know quite a bit more about speakers then I do woodworking, but unfortunately you can’t hear these over the internet… hopefully you enjoy just looking at them. But IMO they sound as nice as I think they look.
