From the level of neatness (or lack thereof) you could not accuse my work area of that.

I'm sure that you are plenty busy, Dave! Whether your shop be tidy or not.

Mine is actually fairly organized, but I have a shortage storage and bench space to deal with all of the little stuff that needs to be at hand all of the time.

Mostly I refer to the trophy shops where they are all tricked out, perfectly clean and tidy, but no real work gets done in them. Kind of like trophy kitchens, etc...

A quick question about this cabinet. For the damping/lining on the back panel. Does it go all of the way to the wall? or does it stop short in order to not block the vent?

Thanks, Chris. I know to not block the vents. Very important!

However, the lining is supposed to be about 1/2" thick and there is much more than this distance from the back panel to the vent itself.

It may not be a big issue in the end, but it won't be easy to change later.

There is enuff space to take it to the edges without occluding the vents.

Lining and holey brace are in!

One small change to the plans that I did do was to add a small flange that sits just inside of the front edge of the sides. This provides more attachment surface for the front baffle, as half of the front baffle is removed here by the bevel I thought that some added stiffness couldn't hurt. It is significantly beveled to the back, so really, this flange just fills the corner between the front baffle and the sides.

I prepared the front baffles to receive the drivers and got the glued on. I'll show some photos of that stage once I get some new photos. But I do have a shot of the circle gutting rig for my router.

Nicely done, Douglas!
I really enjoy seeing pics where the approach includes home-made jigs & lots of sawdust. I can relate!
Best,
don
