Little Corner/Ceiling Mount Coax Design

So I got the bug to do a little woodworking this weekend and wanted to re-design my side surrounds to a "slightly" less profile design, whilst improving the angle of the box to aim the surrounds better. I ended up coming up with this, which wasn't my original plan, but in a 12 foot wide theater, the angle actually puts the CD firing almost dead center of the theater, which should do exactly as was intended.

Oh, and screw triangular boxes, they just aren't as fun as your traditional square box. This prototype will eventually house the Beyma coax, but this one I built out for the old Zilch designed Eminence 10" and d220ti CD combo.

Did you get a hold of the CD or crossover parts? Subbed! Nice work.

Heck no I didn't! This will house the emminence 10 with the zilch crossover design that I currently use as a side surround, and the rear surround will go back to the stock eminence crossover with the apt50's in until I get the beyma's back.

What did you do on the round-over to get the grain like that?

isn't that ply though? Why does it look like solid wood grain when you stain the round-over? Usually ply that gets rounded over looks kinda off. Did you do something special to it? Any filler or anything?

There were a couple spots where I used filler, and the wood is pretty junky so the layers of ply are a little jacked up, but with a really large roundover like 5/8's or 3/4", you can still get a pretty neat effect.

So, test panel turned out pretty good with the sanding and finishing method. What do ya think?

Damn, that's quite a sheen! What is your sanding and finishing method?
Is that Soul Glow?

Front Baffle is doing a little better but this wood from Lowes is (once again) garbage. I used the sanding sealer and while I feel like it helped a little with the wood pulling in the poly, there are still spots that still took it and created some craters. Regardless, here are the sides that I was testing on, and got to pretty nice finish, then the front baffle drying after 2 coats of poly. One more before bedtime and tomorrow I will hopefully be able to take the 800 grit to it and get a smooth surface to continue on with. If not, I will get it the best I can and hit another coat or two of poly and go from there.


I know, hard to really grasp what is going on there, but a reflection nonetheless
