It´s time to post my newest work. I built a pair of Loudspeakers with a high WAF ( wife acceptance factor , best: very small, no cost and very good sound) ;-) , for my dining room. So i took a 3,5 inch high end speaker and built a transmissionline box from 3/4 inch MDF. The camfer is 1/2 inch 30 degree for a better omnidirectional angle. The Box is about 35 inches high, 6,5 inches wide and 9 inch deep. The veneer is caucasian walnut burl, the lighter stripe is poplar burl and the back side is french quiltet figured walnut. I couldnt decide what bookmatch was nicer, so i build 1 box left and 1 right bookmatched. It´s the same veneer what i used for my cabinet restauration. To work with this poplar veneer was very difficult, because after the press it was very flat and straight but when i aplied the glue, it warped like wild. So i have a few cracks in, what i had to fill. The finish is just a few layers of shellac. Everybody who hears this small speakers is amazed how good they sound and what a good bass they have.
