I made these 2-way speakers, wanted to try the Walnut look for a while now.
I builded a set of Solid oak speakers a while ago with the same kit http://lumberjocks.com/projects/74380
I purchased a second hand b&w cc6 centerspeaker, and took the woofers-hardware from it since i was very impressed with the sound quality in the oak speakers.
Glued everything with titebond 3.
wood thickness is 1.3 inch
I used biscuits one the miters to prevent sliding of the sides with the glue up.
When i glue the frame up, i first coat the top and bottom 8 miters with glue, let it soak in a little ,because it´s all endgrain here it absorbs it very quikly. Then when it´s tacky, apply some more glue before clamping on the top and bottom. Instead of machining everything ahead, I also wait with cutting the top and bottom to size after i glued up the frame. Because the 2 are not 100% the same size around.
Thanks for watching!
