Looks very good... But I do hope you plan to use banana plugs... That would be tough to thread the wire / spades and tighten the binding posts...

But I love the compactness. For a setup and forget install it would be great!

Not sure what's up with posting pictures, but i'll keep posting them as i proceed. The CNC was completely DIY and designed by me. The complete build log for the CNC is at Dave's made from samples benchtop router thread .

I wanted compact and this one will weigh in at 2" tall x 10" wide x 7" deep. Shouldn't be too difficult to hook up speakers (the trick is to rotate the posts 45 degrees) and since i'll only need to do it once, i figured no biggie.

I'm really happy with the panels. I figure having them made would have cost about $80. Materials were $4. Not bad considering the CNC only cost $600 to build.

Very nice, indeed. At what rpm and feed-rate do you mill the holes?
Regards,
George

I went slow: 15,000 rpm and 6"/minute with 0.005" depth of cut since it was my first time cutting aluminum. I can definately go deeper so i'll try 0.01 next time.

All parts came from mouser. Those LEDs were the cheapest they had. Here it is with 4 sides. All my projects get at least some wood and I like the look of stained plywood for the sides.

Very nice. I too like the look of wood combined with metals. What are you using to finish the aluminum?

Just polishing the aluminum with rouge. It'll get an oxide layer which is pretty close to clear and then it won't tarnish anymore.
