Walnut! I love walnut. There was a time long,long ago that most commercial speakers automatically came in walnut.

I'm using 4x8 paper back, so can't really take credit for the flitch matching, but I do try to take care with the pattern alignment and centering - more apparent when you see the mirror imaged pair, and I couldn't resist the "eye" pattern on the XL's front baffle.

Take as much credit as you want Chris. I know one end of a hammer from the other on a good day. My last attempt at veneering was not what you'd call furniture grade.

Chris is in a walnut phase. The other 2 are cherry.

Chris (and Bernie for those in solid) gets credit for all the building. These include my designs, Scott's, a set of Bob's ML-TLs and a few others. How many? Lots. At this year's diyFEST we gathered most of the speakers currently kicking around and we counted 42 pair (and there were still boxes without installed drivers, some left at Chris' and some on loan).

"Wow". Best of what I've caught. Refinement.

Yeah, "Wow" was right. Bravo, Chris.
