Those are just amazing Dave.....the color makes me as green with envy! I like the brown cabinets and drivers that are on top of the other blue'ish/green cabinets too. Those green ones just speak to me......maybe something to do with being a UofO Ducks fan

uFonken in macassar ebony (correct me Chris if i have mangled the spelling). The veneer was 'gifted" to us and would qualify as exotic.

This particular pair of boxes have set more than a few people on their butts with open mouths.

Default uFonkenSET Prototype

A bit bigger then a uFonken, a bas shape that is trapezoidal similar to the Mar-Ken12, and made of solid Locust. With the etra volume there is a bit more weight in the bottom. Amazing how they can fill a large room.

Beautiful! Now if we only had a trapezoidal cab for the 10.2's!!
I'm thinking about solid wood cabs as well.
Best,
Don

Bernie gets full credits for the beautiful woodwork..

I knew you were going to ask that

Now that i've broken thru the 2nd one, the others should fall quickly. Chris said he isn't going to build any rectangular ones anymore.

With a few changes A10.2 will fit into Mar-Ken12 enclosure. We are working on converting a surplus Mar-Ken12T box to fit a pair of EL70eN.

I agree with Don, but Bernie's always doing nice work.

I'd like to see some of his worst work for a change!


Best Regards,
Terry

you won't - that's what the shop wood stove is for - unlike MDF&bondo most solid wood is (relatively) safe to heat the workshop with

Very good looking pair; also good to know that the already superb P10 Kens are getting an "upgrade" with the trapezoidal design.
