    Solid ebony turnable / equipment platforms.
    Circa 18"x16" and 10"x16" both 2" thick.
    Dowelled and wood epoxyed (supplied by Make Wood Good - Oak and Teak slow set epoxy).
    This is what nearly 20kgs of ebony looks like.
    The small one nearly finished, the big one rough sanded. Levelled and bevelled.

    Here's a pic of the Driver that will go into the Exponential midbass horns.

    I've been making the back boxes, so more pics to follow soon.

    As part of the ebony equipment bases project, I was also commissioned to make 8 of 3" x 3" x 1" and 8 of 2" x 2" x 1" ebony blocks.
    These will go under various pieces of equipment.

    Here they are rough sawn.



    Here are the 3" blocks accurately sized and coarse finished.



    Next up the 2" square blocks and then fine sanding and polishing.

    Here's the SL-1210 ebony Armboard made to customer spec to fit his Rega tonearm, all fitted up.
    A great job done fitting it.
    Thanks too for letting me share the images.

    The mid bass horn speakers all finished. Palleted and ready to ship to Sunderland.

    Rectangular mouths, circa 60cm X 48cm at widest and over 1.2m long.
    Computer modelled in Hornresp first.
    Going to used around 95Hz to 400Hz
    Made from 6mm void free birch plywood sheets, laminated in several layers to be exponentially flared / curved.
    Backboxes from 21mm birch plywood.
    12" Eminence bass driver gives excellent detail / punch in this frequency range and is ideally suited to front horn loading.

    A new pair of my premium birch plywood cabinets are underway.
    These are computer modelled to have the same back loaded horn characteristics as the regular rectangular GRFs.
    These are taller and deeper to achieve the same volume and horn path, but with a more room friendly footprint.

    100% 21mm premium birch plywood is used throughout. Featuring tear drop baffles and cloth blacked needled wood felt damping.

    The first cabinet is nearing completion. Plinths, drivers etc to go.

    These will have separate birch plywood boxes for the crossovers.

    Always very nice to work with premium birch plywood.
