No Zia, not a 45 deg chamfer unless that's what Andrew wants. The intention is to use a 1/2" or 3/4" roundover bit on the edges and a 1/4" or 3/8" roundover to the 25mm thick top panel.

Roundovers are nice too , and given your skill Colin, I would confidently say that a handsome pair is in the making. Look forward to updates.

OK much progress this weekend whilst it been dry and relative warm for the time of year, so I was able to get outdoors and do the final routing on the patio in the back garden.

I have got both cabinets finished and the first coat of finishing oil applied. I think Andrew and Fiona are gonna like these.

Here's some photos of the finished cabinets whilst drying after the first coat of oil.

I should be able to get the drivers installed and all wired up for tomorrow night. Then the long process of running-in the new drivers.

And here are the finished speakers:

If Scottmoose is looking in on this photo he'll pick up on the fact the port tube on the right side speaker appears a little long. It is as I have to cut them back to length before I fire them up for the first time and start the long slow process of running-in the brand new drivers before Andrew come's down from Scotland next weekend to collect these beauties.

I'll post up some intial impressions when they have been running for week. Not fair on the performance of the drivers before then.

EDIT. Should anyone be wondering what the upper pair of binding posts and dial knob are for, well these are a adjustable L-Pad and output terminals for a supertweeter. In this case a pair the excellent Fostex T90A.

Great job Colin.

It puts the size of the Rossendales into perspective too.

well except for the non-standard spacing of the bottom binding posts.
