Tips & Tricks:
magnetizing the front baffle to the speaker required a great deal of accuracy to get perfect alignment.
Applying veneer to curved cabinets also requires a careful planning and a veneer press or use of titan DX glue.
Learning curve is aimed at individuals with a good working set of tools and amateur’s level of cabinet building. Curved cabinets with layered MDF (not using CNC) is challenging to get perfectly square. Cutting rabbet joints on curved sides requires skill. Great project and very happy with the final product
