Few realized and future DIY projects

Hello,
the first project of my DIY loudspeakers i have served Ti6k- JBL. My first contact with
them, was in distant 2005.
I started working with them in 2009 and finished in 2012.
The loudspeakers are "SEAS"- Excel / Tw-1”, Mw-5”for center 2х 5.5”,Bass-8,5”/ and cross-over parts- "Intertechnik".
Have are some pictures, if there is interest, i will continue.
Regards!

Believe me, these are unique and very difficult to be repeated!
The finish is veneer 'Birds' maple' and 35-40 layers of acrylic auto acrylic varnish.
If you want details on the project write me an emai : graitchev @abv.bg

Amazing shapes and finish.
I thought this was a DIY forum....
My work needs 24 layers of duratex to look presentable or is best viewed in pitch black.

Good information, but unusable for me / I'm in Europe /.
I use 3M dental polishing, but varnishes are European.
Thanks!

Why does Europe make it unusable? The products were generic

The problem is this:
thing in America cost 20 units, in different countries of Europe price is between 23 to 24 / do not include customs fees /.
With the profit of the trader talking about 40 or more units.

Did not understand, about which projects speak, but thank you!
One simple question:
Do you think such projects are everyday and do you think of this post Interestingly enough?
Thanks for your time!
