Yes Richmond can be fun. Many years of school and partying in the city that's for sure. Now that I'm a responsible adult I rarely get out on the town anymore. But at least there is more money for man toys. My bic sub got me through the college years now I'm in with the do it yourselfers. I've been unimpressed with my new build but I still have some tweaking to do. I think I popped my seams in some spots, which could be allowing small air leaks. Since you are clearly skilled in carpentry how would you suggest I tackle the reglueing? Not to hijack your thread.

Hummm. I’ve never fixed a leaking box, but if I had to I would try to from inside of the joints. I don’t think a regluing would work since the rest of the joint would be impossible to remove without destroying the wood. Maybe something like liquid nail would work. It says it can bridge gaps up to 1/4 inch so I think if you just had some hairline cracks it would seal up good.

I got the first coat of poly on last night and went out to sand and do the second coat tonight but its still tacky. So I'll give it another 24 hours. My main worry right now is getting it from the wood shop to the house, Im pushing 150lbs with this thing and Im not as young as I used to be. :flex:

Looks amazing. I may have to use that idea for two 8's and have matching end tables. I dont stray from MDF much though...

Going to need those coasters that really cling so cups aren't rattling off.

Thanks everyone!
Once I've got it in its new home and had a change to watch some movies I'll post an update. I dont have any equipment to take any readings for this things but maybe I can look into that.

Looks solid enough there shouldn't be any rattling! :T Definitely want to use coasters purely because that's way too nice looking to have water marks!

Thanks everyone!
With some help I got the table into its new (hopefully permanent) home. With only my old 200w junk amp I am more than impressed. We watched a few min of X-Men first class before the kids went to bed and in the words of my daughter "holy mollie!" :gulp: It fills the room perfect and you have no idea where the sound is coming from. It is in a corner just to the right of my TV. I'll have to get some pics later but just wanted to update. Can't wait to get my Bash 500.
I would really love to take some measurements but don't have the tools. Anyone have a suggestion for getting into something that’s not to expensive that I could tool around with?

...and no, I have not had a change to do the drink on the table test. My friend that was helping me move it wants me to play the first Jurassic Park and try to replicate the water in the glass effect.....we'll see.

I just read the entire thread and I've have to say this project looks fantastic. I love the finish and the overall design. Did I say that the finish looks beautiful? I need to show this to my friends who think subs need to be large obtrusive black boxes. Really, really nice work!

Oh BTW, do you have any pics of the veneering process? I've not done much myself and would love to see how you did it.

I feel like I am your friend. Because my sub is an enormous obtrusive black box :(. Someday, someday I will create a stained beautiful speaker. This one has motivated me.
