It gorgeous!! I am looking at how to finish my as yet unfinished (sub is done, finish is not) Baltic Birch subwoofer...and i really like this look. I was going to do a slate top or marble top being from vermont...but that granite looks sweet.
I did too [wince], every place I called looking for remnants--I know there are decent places in KC that have good prices, but for whatever reason... Florida really thinks remnants are worth the same as large slabs. I think it comes down to finishing cost--I also went with 3cm vs. 2cm.
I was also thinking of doing some sort of tile/travertine in-lay with wood surround, but figured this surface will last a lifetime.
Bad part is, the cabinet already weighed a ton, then you add the driver, then you add the granite (granite alone is about 120-150lbs).
