    Electrical help on bench sander

    I've been looking for a bench sander that isn't junk but isn't terribly expensive either. Craigslist has some older USA made stuff, but nothing really compact that can be used on the rotating bench I'm thinking of building. Most <$150 seem to be rebadged versions of the same one, with Wen being the...

    Matching an Existing Stain Color

    Any tips/hints, besides try and try again? :B

    I've got a Zaph ZDT 3.5 center channel, its almost complete but I'm having a hard time getting the stain to match the cabinet my T.V. sits on.

    The T.V. cabinet is white ash, and the stain color is difficult to describe - it...

    Crossover layout and baffle cutout questions

    So I got all my parts for the Swope Main MTMs I'll be building soon and I have some general questions about XO layout and building before I begin.

    1.) This XO uses two polypropylene caps and one non-polarized electrolytic cap. The two Dayton polys aren't marked +/- anywhere so I'm assuming...

    Threaded insert-best practice?

    I'm building some mini statements, and due to my construction, I dont have good access to the inside of the baffle. I'm thinking that for the speaker mounting, I'm going to use threaded inserts rather than any kind of T-nut/hurricane nut, etc. I'm taking feedback on both:

    1. Anyone...

  • Cabinet constructions tip, techniques, how-tos, and how-to-nots

    Well, I've realized that building a square box is harder than it appears to be. I learned a lot building my subs the past couple weeks and I've realized that power tools can't overcome user ignorance and can't compensate for lack of experience even if you have a good plan of attack. I wanted to start...

    Woodworking Rant

    I make the most precise cuts. Throw out and peices that are even slightly off.

    I start gluing a sub together last night that I am working on and notice that things are a little off (overhangs).

    I measure the MDF and its almost 1/16" wider than 3/4". Same with...

    Dealing with thick veneer

    I have this wonderful birds eye maple veneer that I bought for my Trilliums. The only problem with it is that it is very thick (perhaps 1/32 inch). It has two or, most likely, three layers of wood backing. This results in a rather conspicuous line at the corners (OK, go ahead, call me obsessive). Here's...

    New veneer?

    Ok as most of you know I've been somewhat unhappy with how my Bamboo veneer turned out. So the last few days I've been really thinking about finishing my speakers (stain and what not) but I really don't want to finish the bamboo. So I've kind of been looking into some veneers again. I found some Birdseye...

  • Cabinet builders: Which circle cutting jig?

    Anyway...

    I was going to pick up the Jasper jig combo from parts express until I noticed their other jig offering here.

    Has anyone used both? Which ones work better? Is there any other solution that makes PRECISE circles for cutouts and countersinking drivers in baffles?...

    Show us your speaker finishes

    Chuck (Impala454) made a suggestion to build a thread based on peoples' finishes. So, one could look at pics and make some educated judgment on possible finishes. Lets post some pics, and try to keep the discussion down as none of us want to hunt through 6 pages of chit chat for that one awesome pic...

  • Circular saw recommendations (for cutting facets)?

    I’ll be cutting facets into the front baffle of my ongoing project. After reading and thinking about it, the circular saw method, as shown below from jquin, might be the best way to go. So I need to get a circular saw. Any favorite models out there?

    By searching here I didn’t find too...
