Looking good: can't wait to see the unique finish you're planning. If those are hollow tubes, you might try inserting some damping material inside as mine ring from time to time and I need to do something on my big sonosub. I'm thinking of using spray-foam or caulk.

well the stainless Idea is a no go.. To expensive lol. So I got a metal called Paintgrip. Its pretty much a baked on primer on a sheet of metal. Paints real nice. So I'm going to wrap the sonotube with it and will be a nice smooth finish. So the color scheme is going to be Satin black and polished Brass. Hope it turns out.

wanted more support so took out the metal pipe and put in wooden rod. the fostner bit was a bit larger than the pipe so it was a loose fit. so the wood dowels fit nice and snug.
