Hey, I'm also new and from Mpls. I'm just starting to get my feet wet in diy electronics, but I've done diy furniture in the past. I hope this turns out to be as fun as that!

Sry that I missed your reply.

I'd like to get some learning in here. I'm waiting on my mouser order for trafo's, to power my audiosector 3875 kit. When that package shows up, I'd be more than happy to have a solder circle. (kindof like a knitting circle, but with a 350 degree knitting needle and better music)

Hello, I am beginning membership here today as well. Your location reminds me of Garrison Keillor.

I listen to a lot of public radio, but something about Keillor drives me insane.

I like the coolness of the NPR reporting. When I first used to listen to GK, I didn't like it. Either it began to grow on me or the writing changed. It just seems to be a little different to me then it was a couple of years ago. But still, sometimes I find myself not liking a show very much at all while other times I find it rather engaging. I think it was after I listened to Writer's Almanac that my view began to change, too.

I have found that one of the most rewarding DIY projects is speakers, especially subwoofers. Your woodworking experience should come in handy there.

Actually, my woodworking skill is pretty poor, and my garage is unheated (not a pleasant shop in Minnesota), but my concrete skills are pretty damn good. I really like the aesthetic aspects of a really dark wood with bleak concrete.

Very interesting that you should mention this. I actually made my subwoofer out of concrete. I decided to go for ultimate stiffness and cabinet deadness at lower bass frequencies. http://www.geocities.com/jomeis1/Con...Subwoofer.html

Besides, my woodworking ability is poor as well, so using concrete actually gives a more acceptable appearance. However, I have figured out a halfway decent way to get an extremely stiff box out of wood as well. But I have only thought about it and have not made a speaker out of wood for 25 years now.

My work space is unheated too. I only do hobby work during the warm months. But up there, you really feel a 'brrr'.

I wanna see pictures!

Btw, there was a concrete turntable built in the late 80's. It hard a very rough finish, with a mesh "rebar" sticking out. I think it may have been more an art project than an exercise in fidelity.
