I had a somewhat productive weekend. Cut holes for the binding post and did a roundover on the outside. Dry fitting the bining posts:
All three boxes together:
Glued the front baffle to the box and roundover edges:
Looks like I found a good spot for the crossover:
Now I need to figure out how to attach it to the box since I don’t want to glue it permanently. Two options I’m considering are:
1)Use industrial strength Velcro
2)Use t-nuts and bolts
Any other suggestions?
At this point I’m done with the saw dust part and moving to paint and assembly. I’m really glad to be done with the saw dust part of the project. I think I underestimated the amount of efforts it is going to take to finish these boxes. I probably spent 12-18 hours putting these three boxes together, granted some of that time was spend fixing mistakes I made and learning along the way. Next time I’ll probably go with the flat-packs (Who am I kidding, I will never learn
and will repeat the whole process again).
Purchased three grill frame kits from PE and will be putting them together this week:
I also got my order of 1.5inch eggcrate foam from foambymail.com which I need to cut and glue to the inside of the boxes.
I also ordered a gallon of Duratex which should arrive this week but I’m now questioning my decision, these are big boxes and painting them all black might not win any points with my wife and get them approve for the living room use. I would have like to veneer them but I have never done this before. Maybe time to learn some new skills again?
