I remember hearing something similar from my ex about the first pair of BIB cabinets I made. We split up shortly afterwards (after I'd finished the blasted things too, with a rather nice sycamor veneer on the front IIRC).

No great loss. I kept the horns.

Been there, DOING that.

Hope things are better now for you.

Wince. Good luck.

Last I heard about that particular ex GF, she was teaching some weird dance-therapy stuff in Israel of all places , so the phrase 'better out of that one' comes to mind.

Relax - I plan to have that done before Christmas

Any advice / suggested links on application methods. There seems to be alot of disagreement when it comes to this sort of thing. Was leaning toward pva iron on?

I think the glue to use is called hide glue, as used by luthiers (I am told).

Damn you buggar, I was going to do a similar thing, with a Thor rune. Now I will look like a pretender

Anyway - absolutely exquisite. Thanks for posting

Scottmoose: WE DO! Thank you!

Hey, I like the snowflake background and Santa' hat.
About the speakers, they are going to take a while to break-in. Mine took around 200 hours to smooth out the barking tweets.
Perhaps it was psycho-acoustical in nature as the bass filled in about the same time. Hmmmmm. In either case exersize those woofers, make them move!
Most of all enjoy the fruits of your hard labor of love.
Congratulations, I KNOW you will Love'em.
My problem is now I have to upgrade the rest of my system to fully appreciate the Thors. LOL...what a shame.

Very nice job. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

Ron
