No problem.

You can use one if you feel like it, with the 126 at any rate, particularly if you can't corner-load them. Should support the upper bass regions a little.

You're right, I'd be surprised if I saw light on the other side.

Buying pre-veneered panels can be an excellent way of doing it. We use a big pneumatic press, and so its reality easy to press your own. Doing by hand is alot harder, we had to do a few panels with animal glue, and push sticks and its not easy. For edging boards, we use pva and an iron, this sets the glue of almost instantly.

I purchase all my veneer for furniture work from veneersonline on eBay. His buy it nows are often quite expensive however I have purchased some bargains on auction, I have bought a big bundle of American Black Walnut, some nice birds eye maple and some macassar ebony (hoping to use the latter in Betsy open baffle black and birds eye together)

I buy all my veneers from Nantwich Veneers. But they usually only sell full bundles which contain 16 -20 consecutive cut full leaves. This makes it easy to book match panels. Buying this way works out far cheaper compared to any the prices I have seen on Ebay.

aquapiranha if you are anywhere near me and you want Oak I have both European and American White in stock that I can sell you some for a pair of FH3's.

Send me a email or PM if you're interested.

Colin - how about paperbacked products?

They're far more commonly used in the commercial trade over here - easy to work with and can be very affordable, but they do have the downside of being very thin - you definitely need to be careful with your sanding at edges and exposed cut-outs.
