Default In the wrong place ?

Before i was struck down by my mystery illness (myelitis) i was a bit of a speaker builder.
The following are a couple of pics of my last project. It took me over a year and selling almost all of my "stuff" to complete.
I had to eat after all.

The boxes are made of 25mm MDF side panels with a strip laminated front,top,back and base. The veneer is Tasmanian Myrtle one of our finest cabinet timbers.

The drivers are a slightly modified Seas LR15 and a Foster dome from Dave @planet ten X/O is 2k third order electrical on the Foster and Second on the Seas. All internal wiring is twisted Copper and Silver, the umbilical from the X/O to the box is Silver Teflon Mil-spec wire. The X/O's use Foil air cores and a variety of silver foil in oil caps.
Now i am officially in remission and taking one of the new wonder drugs. I intend to do a lot more now. When i was told i may only have weeks to live i realised how much time i had wasted.
Hopefully my next project will be a bit "special"

Many thanks to all who wished me well and bought stuff from me.

Interesting, it looks like a load of end-on MDF panels. So the middle section is actually a veneer? Is the whole lot varnished or lacquered?

The side panels are 25mm thick mdf the "insides" are made of 12mm mdf laminated with polyurethane glue as the binder. Each 12mm panel had the guts cut out to an L shape. The L's were put end to end and pinned and glued. using wooden pins similar to a chopstick. After the cabinet was completed the veneer was added. The whole lot then got a good soaking with Linseed oil and was finally burnished to the eggshell gloss in the picture. There is no wax or non organic finish used, as the "Beer Midget" isn't so keen on the odours generated.

Ah now I get it, the veneer is only on the side panels.
