    I hate to say it, but looks splotchy.

    It's hard to tell when you are being literal or facetious.

    I think any patchiness is just reflection showing up on the finish.

    Making progress on my outriggers. Used 1.5" x .5" square bar and a 1/4-20 tap for the spikes. cobri3bk2rjj.jpg

    Literal, cherry tends to splotch.

    Perhaps so.

    They look good. For future reference, you can buy aluminum ones already made from 80/20.

    The finish reminds me of the Pioneer Birch for the Usher speakers

    gwg_97,

    Your speakers look terrific. The cabinets really look modern.

    Beautiful Job!
  • FaustinFaustin Posts: 654
    They sure look purdy

    Thanks guys! The 2000 grit abralon hand rubbing over gloss creates a really nice finish but it's a lot of work.

    You've done a very nice job of renovating these old classics, I think they look great.

    Hope you get your center imaging worked out, I had a bad connection between a jumper wire on the binding posts at one time on a pair of SDA's, they acted much the same.

    Thanks and thanks for the heads up regarding the jumper wire. I'll check it out.

    Good job, the finish looks a lot better! That is the first SDA transformation from end caps and cloth sides to an all wood veneer cabinet I've seen that looks right, congrats

    I think that an updated grill cover would look great if it just covered the outline of the drivers and left some of the new cherry wood exposed above and below that dimensional. It would showcase the mirror imaging design of that particular SDA too.

    Nice job, could be the best new thought on SDA aesthetics that I have seen come along!

    It does resemble the direction that Tekton has gone with its baffle designs.

    Cleanest looking SDAs I've seen. Nice work.
