The Ultra Touch roll is available in 2`` thickness at Rona, here in Canada. It can be teased apart to thinner size.

Thanx Douglas. Rona is twice as far as HD (any time i'm down the mountain have to drive by the HD twice, so is much more convient).

You can tease the stuff apart but it is not pretty

Good thing that the stuff is inside a closed box!

There is a Rona almost across the street from HD, so I can get whatever the other doesn't have.

Taken the drivers out to sand on finishing, about 1 - 2 hours on sanding and 1 hour spent to stain the cabinets.


Next step to add some protection and gloss ...

They look good. You're a few hours ahead of me, I got one unfinished ready to install driver and the other will have the last side glued up tonight.
What finish are you going to use?

I'm using a stain with the sangria color, then finish with couple coats of gloss. I just finishing up and putting on spike feet right now.

Almost there.

What kind of feet are you using? I have 6 that you just place under a speaker. I saw the website that Dave posted to buy some feet and I was thinking of making up some aluminum strips, putting some of the feet on the sides and screwing to the bottom of the speakers.
Quite similar to what were in Colin's pictures.

It looks like a lot of us will be emulating that plan - just don't be surprised if the cost of Alum, paint and particularly decent spikes like Colin used cost as much as the raw board for the enclosures.

Default All Done

Finally all done. 2 coats of Gloss goes on top of sangria stain.

I put some simple spike feet underneath and I think it improved the bass.

Love the sound pairing it with my NAIM ... need to build a tube amp next
