Well it looks like you are doing a great job. Keep us up on your progress.

Are you planning to do the thumbnail roundover that Kharma does? I was thinking of picking up one of two router bits I've seen that were perfect for the job. Either a giant thumbnail bit or a handrail bit I've seen would do the job (only with table router, would be unsafe with handheld).

I made the stands. 3/4" mdf and 5 coats black lacquer and 2 coats clear. Only purchased the spikes.

I've stood on them and they held 185 pounds, but I am going to remake them 1/4" wider for more strength and to match originals better.

Updated pic.

Leaning more towards the Ceraminique look now (no wood) even though I carved the frontbaffle grooves like an Exquisite. It'll end up being a combo of the two.

The base will be a challenge as I don't have 1" aluminum stock or a milling machine. I have made detachable feet like the Ceraminique out if 1 1/8" mdf but I like the idea of a 1 piece base like the Exquisite.

Default UPDATE PIC

Decided on wood veneer on top only. All black just seemed too stark. And I'll never get the black lacquer as good as they do in Italy.

Settled on this design. Mostly black with wood trim top and side bottoms.
