I can hardly believe its getting on towards two years since I last dropped in. Life has been nothing if not hectic during this period, but I have been able to get some more designs constructed despite being time poor. Some of you may remember these ,that I posted about at the time.
Well I've been at it again.
This time I'm doing a set of PMS speakers, or rather a slightly reworked design. I'm starting to get close to the end of the construction phase and the beginning of the finishing stage. I have been keeping a build log of these on our audio forums and you can view that in the build log thread here .
Any questions or comments I will answer in this thread.The front baffle plate is going to be either dark stained or painted a textured matt charcoal grey/black.The edge caps are stained English Mahogany as is the top. I'm trying to make up my mind whether I spray them a gloss poly finish or use a satin finish.The image below shows one of the speakers with the front baffle still in the native color and the rounded side panel have had a couple of coats of Zinszer Amber Shellac applied for coloration and to act as a sealer. You can see from the color difference how much the character of the wood changes.Below are a few of the images from the build thread showing the basic process.
