Time to wake up this thread!

I thought I would share the technique I used to remove the seating rib from the electrical coupling connector I will be using for the port (first photo).

Second photo shows a 1 inch router flush trim bit mounted in my drill press. Pulleys set for 3050 rpm for a workable level of speed. This made it easy to trim down the rib to a workable depth as seen in the third photo. It was easy to maintain control and a level of safety while only removing material I wanted removed.

Fourth photo shows a grinding stone bit being used to finish the removal of the remaining rib as the flush bit is never truly flush. The final finish and surface prep is put on with a bit of emery cloth and a bit of elbow grease. Ready for painting....

Smart! Always like to add a new method to my collection. Thanks

Some delays at paint. Expecting Painted Waveguides this weekend.

Picked up Painted Waveguides today. Shipping info to come

Pair of New Cabinets, components recessed with CNC Template. Tweeter and waveguide machines to the correct depths

Note on installing waveguide. Pilot holes need to be centered very accurately or srews will pull the waveguide off centre. Also best to drill out the top of the pilot hole with a larger bit to a depth of a few millimeters so the screw wont lift up the top surface..

Has anyone built the JR mini? It's Pretty special

Joel

Beautiful work Joel! Curly figured maple? The seams between the veneer sheets turned out perfect. Absolutely stunning.

Tell us more about the JR mini.

Personally, I would love to see the Hamlet resurrected with the crossover tuned for the waveguides.

But first things first...

Your using ply as well! Thats great but Now Im really curious about your construction methods. I went through some agony with this(baltic birch with locked joints) starting 2 years ago and have solved some issues. No problem if your already experienced but would love to hear what your plan is..

Cant find JR mini post but it on this forum somewhere. Joe posted it for, I think, center or rears, but they make excellent small monitors.

I am using 12mm ply.

I plan on building a box within a box. The outer box will completely overlap the joints of the inner box. The inner box will be butt-joined, glued and reenforced with cabinet screws. The current plan for the outer box is to butt-join and glue to the inner box. Although, I am always open to suggestions.

Sounds like a strong cab

You dont want to veneer over the plywood end no matter how flush/sanded it is.. The end grain will telegraph through the veneer over a six month period.

The picture shows one solution. hardwood corners work as well.
The front of the Elsinore is a little harder.
