Default Surgery

Once in a while you have a project that is almost completed and right before the last phase you end up making a major screw up
In my case more frequent than usual.
During my latest project, while rounding over the edges and not taking my time, I got the round over bits orientation with respect to
Solid surface mixed up and ended up taking a big chunk out of my almost completed project.
Wood filers are ok for a small nicks but when you have a large dip in the works you have to make repairs.
Although this happened in the back of these and couldnít be seen, it nonetheless bothered me. So onward with surgery....

Hi Router,

Looks like the "surgery" is going well.

Thanks Ken,
Indeed the patients are recovering quite well.
Just need a little more 220,320 and the final 600 grid with Tung oil therapy and they should be ready for day to day activity.

WOW, they're coming out quite nice.
I think the Tung oil will definetly be the perfect cure.

Knowing how to fix mistakes in my mind is the hallmark of a craftsman*, and you have certainly fixed that one.

I've just noticed that there doesn't appear to be any cross bracing in the cabinets, I'm sure you will find that all professional designs include cross bracing in addition to sound deadening filling to prevent the panels from resonating. Just thought I'd mention it.

That's true Harry.
And mostly with mid size and larger boxes . And depending on the thickness of the wood some smaller boxes.
These are one inch thick and I might be adding just a simple cross brace after I seal the insides.
I have the braces cut but tapping the sides with and without them didnít make that much of a difference in this case so I left them out for now.
Making the speaker boxes, no matter how challenging itís my favorite part of the project. Measuring drivers and designing the crossover is what
I do not enjoy. Itís one of those things I just donít have the patience for anymore. The last pair I designed was back in 91 and the crossovers took three months to tweak. After this I have one more tower pair project left, which I started last year and put off and that will be last.
