Built some speakers for my girlfriend’s birthday. I wanted to try doing hand cut dovetails and this was the perfect opportunity.
The outside is solid oak joined with dovetails and glue. The front and back are MDF, I countersunk the drivers and chamfered the rear baffle using my router. I made the mistake of using the router to cut the holes for the drivers, I ended up completely dulling my spiral cutter bit. The back braces are white pine with weather stripping.
I stained the oak mahogany and finished it with poly. Painted the MDF Black with 5 coats of clear laquer. I wet sanded the laquer and buffed it for a nice shine.
