Your ESL's look great. You must have put some long days and hard weeks of work in. How many hours in total would you estimate the build took?


I wonder why you would prefer acrylic for the lattice- is it for a low profile look or for sound?

The wood lattices are esthetically pleasing and they do not detract from the sound in any way-- but cutting 96 hardwood details with the required precision is no easy task. Laser cut details would be much easier.
