Had a mental health day today, so down in the workshop this arvo building a finger jointing jig for my router table. So can offer box joints or dovetails now. Its weird spending time building jigs as I always think of it as wasted time - however they save time _sigh_

Its a question of aesthetics as either joint should be as strong - though I think dovetails have the edge as they are a wedge too. Longer setup time for dovetails though.

Starting on another tweed deluxe cab - actually will do 2 this time as I may put one on the tard/visagelivre. Else it will be in stock if anyone has a need ;)

A fender reverb cab... no surprise who that ones for

My ampeg svt head cab :) finally...

Anyway will keep updated with pics as progress occurs.

This is all awesome and im struggling to suppress physical manifestations of arousal at the thought of readily available cabby goodness.

You had to wait until just after I had pulled the trigger on a Mesa didn't you???

;)

only joking, been seriously impressed by your most recent project and would have been on the verge of enquiring if I hadn't just grabbed that cab. Maybe a 2nd cab later ;)

Got some time this weekend - so have started the Tweed deluxe cab (for one of our members here).

Nice clear pine, have to go through the entire stack to get some that isn't cupped or warped - thats ok, got 2 pieces.

Image

Test joint - nice and toight but a bit of a gap at the top, no problem - it wasn't square.
Image

Proper joints - wrapped in masking tape for routing, no breakout :)
Image

All sides done, all joints done.
Image

Control panel cutout and rounded over to the 10mm radius spec.
Image

Top and bottom facias cut and recessed, fitted to cab and the whole shebang is currently clamped and gluing :)

That's utterly ridiculous. But it would perfectly match a sea foam green amp.

Aroused.
