Re: CSS Criton.2 MLTL build

So this took far to long... but now Iīm back on track the previous cabinets was badly damaged by an accident in the workshop so they were thrown in the recycle bin.










Hopefully paint job on sunday.

Hi,

Looking good and I know from private email that your life has been stressful at times.

Shortly I'll have some interesting precut baffles available for this kit.

An honor hearing it from the man who has seen a lot of cabinets from the inside

Packing a lot of boxes now so we can move to our first house next weekend.

I have indeed seen the inside of dozens of subwoofers, but none of them equal your craftsmanship. Next month I should be getting a 21" unit from Funk Audio - a company known for their cabinetry - so I may finally get to see something as nice.

Re: CSS Criton.2 MLTL build

Well this year and last years longest DIY build finaly has some progress, I got tired waiting for the workshop to help me with the paint job and obviously I have had many other things to take care of with family and the house so itsīpartly my own fault to-

Missed a few photos when repairing a minor router accident on a cabinet corner but this was fixed with a 2K epoxy fill.
Went on with sealing the MDF did some research and found out that Shellac does the trick but also found out that the newer water based product may be a very simple mixture of 50/50 water and wood glue... no more words on that but it seems to work very good.
Lite sanding and then some primer not water based since this can rise some fibers and you get a rough surface.



I would be happy to use a spray gun to finish the cabinets but changing the roof and other stuff keeps me from spending that kind of money on equipment right now.
Later on I will probably build a DIY paint booth but right now the roller will be good enough but why not I have seen people painting cars with a roller

Re: CSS Criton.2 MLTL build

Well I was not very happy with the results I accomplished with the roller maybe cheap paint, wrong amount of white spirit... bought a bunch of spray cans better result but why did I throw on the high gloss
Spray cans can be ok but itīs a waste of money it will be expensive to paint bigger projects so I should have bought a spray gun from start.




So two choices wet sand and polish the high gloss and do the same with the other cabinet or sand down the gloss and buy two cans of matte black...
