yes I was so annoyed at myself for drilling those right speaker holes on the piss. I went to bed angry that night.

Then I realised my drilling was fine and the cream magnet dustcover was on the piss.

Anyway, pine with dovetail corners. 12mm ply baffle, removable back for closed/open goodness. Plywood splitter as per original spec but glued and screwed not stapled, or made from mdf as the originals were - hope that doesn't kill the toan!

Even after so many, I still make mistakes. Fixing them is the trick, I'm looking forward to making a cab that is perfect from the outset. I think it'll be yours ;)

With this one I fucked the grill cloth with too high a heatgun setting, it burnt through. Luckily I could use that on a smaller cab. Its just one of those moments you think, shit there goes my profit. I normally don't shrink the grill cloth on cabs - if you do it properly it doesn't need it, but this one needed a little, and the missus had hidden her hairdryer so I grabbed the heat gun and.... sigh. I still got a KFC out of it.

So yeah, flawless. Now :)

Take $20 off for the scuffs on the feet?

Kidding. YAY! Can't wait : )

Also I was wondering what you meant about the cover being skewed. Do you just mean the back cap on the speaker on the right side (looking from the back) looks slightly rotated? Like the "Celestion" etc are a bit angled? If it's just cosmetic, that doesn't worry me at all.

Dude, there has been masking tape on the feet until that pic :P Corners, handles, feet are covered until final pics. Anything on there now is fresh sawdust sticking to residual sticky :D As lovely as they look, they need to be protected :D

yeah its the rotation thing that annoyed me, just because I thought I'd somehow managed to drill it on the piss....
