Default coffee, a blowtorch and TQWP's

so I built these speakers about six years ago. until last week I had not put any sort of finish on them. after talking with an artist friend of mine( scott bye http://sculpturebyescott.com/ ) I decided to let him go to town on them with a blowtorch and instant coffee. here is the result. I think they turned out well and could not be happier with them. the speaker design is andy g's(thank you for sending me the plans) I love the way they sound. I do not claim to be a wood worker or an audiophile, just a fan of both. so let me know what you think.

Jeremy

Excellent! Nice to see some speaker related 'old world' creative finishing.

I remember doing that. Many moons ago I took the same torch as the artist, put a fan type diverter on the end so the flame was spread out more and took it to a large set of pine boxes I had built around a 2X4 frame. I then sanded and oiled them. I didn't use coffee and they sure didn't look as nice as those but I was very pleased with the effect nonetheless. Glad to see that old is new again. Those look great.
