    When you are obsessed with the idea of "DIY", all the difficulties do not matter. The best results are obtained when "DIY" is not only a hobby but also a profession, but this is known to everyone, sorry for the cliché!
    Perhaps you will be interested in how I did this project, maybe not? So, let's start;
    First i did this "home-matrix";

    Of course it depends on the facilities one has, I am good at construction but have not got great facilities. Imporovising is Ok for a small design job but if the volume of work is high it becomes tedious.

    My situation is a same, I don't need many tools, this is my "copy center";
    P.S.
    There is no tedious work in the DIY!

    Excuse me for this successive posts, but I want to finish the topic, thank you!
    The finish is 35-40 layers of acrylic high quality auto varnish and after each layer- polish.

    That is some serious dedication going on there.
    I hope they sound as good as they look.

    Do you assume, that you will get poor results with such speakers?

    I will show you one of my projects, which I had to change basically right at the very beginning - the back speakers , let's go;
    The loudspeakers are "SEAS"- Excel T25CF002 ", W18EX001- 6,5"
    Everything is handmade, no "CNC" machine is used.

    First I paint the model as I like it / I do not like the standard prisms / I don't use 3D programs. I'm an electrical engineer and
    all I need is an idea, a pencil, mathematics, elementary geometry , a perspective view and that's it ...
    We all know, what is the ideal shape for the speakers. For technological reasons, it is difficult to do, especially with three tape loudspeakers. I strive to make the second most effective form - the egg.
    To begin with, I schematically design this way;
    I calculate the approximate volume, how do I find the right volume, will show you later in my project .

    Very impressive - fabulous commitment to doing a great job and fabulous results.
    This shows what can be done with relatively limited facilities if you're prepared to be creative and put the work in. I'd put this in the super-league of DIY.

    Thank you for your good rating!

    Another position of internal ribbing in the cabinets /p.-1/;
    For the next stage I made this "home matrix", with its help I bent 8 layers with 4 mm beech plywood;
