Default BiB and can be beautiful...

Here are my latest additions, a pair of BiBs with Fostex 108 Sigma units. The overall height was increased to raise the units to listening heights. The units and spikes are not installed, that'll be done when I'm back from my travels. I did have occassion to listen to them before embarking on the paint-job. The sound: magic from the get-go, timbre and imaging is very impressive and the bass deepens with time (i.e. break-in). All in all a nice, simple, project that's well worth trying. They're made from 18mm 13-ply Baltic Birch, sealed, primed and lacquered with numerous layers for a perfect reflection

Wow, you sure went overboard on the primer coat. So what color are you gonna paint them? Seriously, I'm not big on the color, I see that inside electric motors, but the execution of the finish is flawless. Nice job!

LOL. I saved your pic to my computer and named it Beautiful-BIB! They look fantastic! BTW, i think back to when Ed Schilling was selling off his remaining stock of 108 cheap to replace with the 126e... I should have bought the 108!!! Enjoy them!

Godzilla, thanks for the positive feedback. You've had a lot to do with the quality of the end-product; so a big "thank you" for that as well. They really do sound great, the more I listen(ed) to them - unfortunately I am now away from home for 4 months - the more I appreciate the design of the speaker and the quality of the 108's. I'm glad I wasn't aware of Ed's dealings, that could have cost me some serious money...
I've attached two detail photo of the feet, spikes will be added later, important to me as it was my first trial-run with a new router. The second photo shows a reflection of the wooden floor, not the speaker's wood-texture itself. Once I'm back home and have re-inserted the units, attached the grills and spikes I may place a few more photos here.
Thanks also to gychang and rcavictim for their (funny) comments. This really is a great forum and these speakers would not have been built without it.

It's great to see that people care about the finish, i don't :P
Mine are still untreated particle board with the top-piece being a little too large on both speakers needing to be fixed.

Yes, my amplifier looks insanely good. But the speakers don't, unfortunately

Well, i must say the red speakers above are really beautiful (although red is not my fav color). But it reminds me a little of the Focal Scala Grand Utopia i listened to which were red too
