Default Xoc1 6F TH

First I want to thank Xoc1,Tb46 and others for this tapped horn design.
I have everything ready and building is on the way.

I will be asking questions if i come across any trouble.

My first question is about angle cut.

Guess you're not building it out of Baltic? Most suppliers carry 5x5 only for Baltic.

I got a 4x8 sheet from FW Honerkamp but they said it was very rare and only get the 4x8's once in a while. (it was 13ply very few voids and footballs)

What are you going to use?
Marine grade?

After working with Baltic, and other lesser plys, I since have willingly paid the extra $ for Baltic because it is a joy to work with. (machines nicely, cuts easily without too much splintering, sands to a nice finish very quickly, very few voids etc etc)

I've never used it, but it looks like a nice wood...
AraucoPly, MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY FACE - ARAUCO

I would deff. add bracing throughout the cabinet, the way bracing was suggested in the TH-18 thread...use triangular cutouts to minimize volume of the braces, and to transfer loads through nodes in the braces.

Hi kornnylike,

You may want to pm Xoc1 about the angles, he can get them straight from his drawing.

Regards,
