    I've built couple. That's a lot of handy work, I must say, but if you enjoy building things, then go for it, design something of your own

    Whenever I get teh DIY bug I go to your site for inspiration then realize my close enough attitude isn't good enough for DIY so I pay someone to do it properly for me. You're keeping the economy ticking over.

    rayc, as far as DIY stuff goes - attitude is the key, (for me so, anyways), it's almost all about momentary excitement of making something that you have no idea how it may come out. Another words, if I'd had and follow some "plan" and was trying to meet some specific set of expectations, then I would not be able to deal with it.
    Also, a part of DIY is about getting it done improperly and being very happy with the result at the end ... something that no money can buy

    I've been curious about this -- how much science goes into these things? Are the boxes tuned in any way? That is, is there an optimal volume / shape / speaker layout given the frequency range you want? From here, it looks like it would be no harder than building a nice-looking, thoroughly glued wooden box.

    WOW, WOW, WOW

    I've done some cabinet refurbishing, but FAR FAR away from looking that awesome!

    Two thumbs up is not enough!

    Cheers!

    As much as one is willing to let go into "things".
    From me personally into my "things" exactly zero of "science" went, yet I did not try to cut corners on glues.
    Also, science always was, is and will be for sale. The things you make do not have to be

    btw, just in case anybody will be interested in covering cab or amp box with leather, here's how I've got some leather cuts, by searchning leather scrap at eBay, you can find some nice cuts for cheap:
