Default 2 frugel horn mk3 questions

I am wanting to build a pair of your cabinets to use in our "office" I apologize if these points have been addressed all ready.

What of the bamboo sheet goods do you guys prefer? I have access to the teragren products.

What are thoughts on a double thick front baffle to allow a large roundover?
Thanks, Evan

We are less brand agnostic and more interested in the perticular material. These guys are distributors and the product is all OEMed in China.

We have 5 local distribs with different brands. What we use comes down to them more than the brands. AFAIK we have mostly used Plyboo, but i have looked at the Teragren and it is one of the more reputable brands.

Look for the stranded varieties, They are quantitativly superior and have a harder surface that resists scratches & dings to a greater extent. It is also more expensive and sometimes only comes in 4 x 6 sheets.

Looks like the Teragren brand is Xcora.

Xcora® Bamboo Panels + Veneer - Teragren®

That is fine. A big round-over will give an interesting mosaic of the end-grain, i look forward to seeing that. On the back layer make sure that the cut-out opening is larger than the cut-out for the driver on the front piece.
