hmm, clean machining of dovetails in material as soft a red cedar could be very problematic indeed

I think a small box consisting of 13 pieces glued together (some edge glued and 3 layers in the side walls) no matter how careful the grain alignment' is quite different from a shake roof

Yes, shingles/shakes on a roof can crack and still perform.
Interesting to see how they'll hold up.
Great work, btw.
-offering those packs will allow many more people to hear just what a great design these cabs are!

I bet they smell nice too.

But the driver recess isn't round, the EL-70 is round - looks more like a Fostex driver was planned for these boxes ?

Default joinery solution???

I am certainly not a cabinet-maker or anything like that but offer some food for thought regarding the cabinet joinery dilemma. Would lock-mitered joints be at all feasible for a design such as this?

wow, those polka dot drivers do look good - the gold/bronze finish especially well suited to the cabs.

neither am I a journeyman jointer, but in a few words - I don't think so

stepped dadoes maybe, but keep in mind these are pretty tiny, tapered boxes not subject to a lot of stress, and with quite a bit of glue surface area - I'd imagine that with any wood glue better than library paste the simple butt joints would be quite sufficient

You might be behind Ced, but consider it done.... now we just need to work thru all the testing & detail.
