Default Sapele Betsy baffles

Another addition to the Betsy baffle family .....

My local lumber supplier has a steady inventory of 3/4" Sapele wood in widths that work for the Betsy baffles .....

Hey Randy!

Would it be possible to buy a tigerwood flat-pack kit? (without tweeter cutout)

Hi Xaborus,

Unfortunately, the supplier who I obtained the Tigerwood stock from has not been able to get it in 18" widths.

Truthfully, most of the nice hardwoods that I originally offered have become very hard to get in 18" widths.

So, the only things I have been able to offer recently is the Sapele and the red oak plywood in various stains.

Interestingly enough, the Sapele is similar to the Tigerwood when a linseed oil / beeswax finish is applied to both.

If this would be of any interest to you, send me an email at the address on my website.

Best wishes,

Randy
