I wouldn't worry if your meter hasn't moved in two weeks... especially if it is stuck in the veneering or sanding sealer areas. That process takes a lot of TIME. The sealer has to be applied and allowed to cure, get sanded, then reapply, cure get sanded... you get the picture. The time it takes to cure varies greatly with the weather and ambient temperature/humidity in the shop, probably 24 -48hr minimum between coats. If you rush it, it looks like crap. And, if you got a high gloss finish (like I did) the whole deal will take even longer...
Also, keep in mind that it is tax time (Jim's busiest time of the year, I think). Everybody wants to spend their refunds on new speakers, right?
Could be that he is so busy that his supplier for sanding sealer ran out, and he is forced to wait for the product to become available again, or search for another supplier... who knows. I'm sure Jim will get back to you if you email and ask what the hold-up is, though probably not until he gets back from the Audio show.
Bottom line: be patient
The wait is worth it, even if it takes almost a year for completion (thats how long mine took (had to wait for finalisation on the new woofers for HT3))
