The curve was made by first making a 10 degree cut using a table saw on either side of the front baffle lengthwise. This took care of most of the material that had to be removided, then i used a belt sander to curve the front baffle and ensured consistency using a template cut at a 36" radius.

Thank you for the compliments.

WOW!

And How long did it take for each baffle?

And how thick is the box?

It took me about 4-6 hrs a baffle (pefecting), i went from the belt sander, to a palm sander, to hand sanding. Because the speakers were going to be clear coated, any variation in angle was going to be quite visible.

The box is 1.5" on all sides, with internal bracing and damping.

The wood work is fantastic. High gloss polish is so reveling of any errors yet you dared to use it. Fantastic work.
