I'm still pondering the paint, I have a bit of time before it's needed.

I had Mister Plywood cut up the sheet to make the bass boxes from, which required 45 degree cuts on the corners for joining & they cut them out of square! so I took them back, they tried again, & in the end gave up as they couldn't 45's square with there mega saw!!!.

I imagine it will be some months before they are finished, they look simple enough but based on personnel experience they will take at least twice as long as I think

I'm also playing with my BIII/Arduino audio remote control Preamp which is lots of fun and surprise, surprise, time consuming

I'm about to start a thread re same but have run out of energy for today, cleaning the house in exhausting.

I spent the better part of Saturday sanding the burn marks out caused by the router bit. I'm glad I used a sharp bit otherwise I would have spent the better part of the weekend doing it. I have applied a couple of coats of lacquer to protect the pieces while the carbon fibre etc is applied.

At the moment you can see the plywood edge which was always going to be covered with paint, but at the moment the jury is still out on the final finish for the exposed plywood edge. Building the panels from solid timber was never really an option as it is too unstable and hard to deal with.

Getting the MDF cut for the woofer boxes has been a real drama, after Misterplywood declared they couldn't do it. I took the pieces to a friends joinery shop & he trimmed them up on his much less expensive saw & they are fine?? EXCEPT now the box is fractionally too small, 1mm, yes folks 1mm. Which means the driver won't fit in with it's rubber surround in place, which adds about 5mm to the overall diameter.

I decided to go with a key join on the corners so have made up a jig for the router table as per the photos.

To be continued next weekend.
