When folks said that amp-building is addictive, I thought they meant, "You'll really like it and maybe want to do it again someday." Ha! Not quite. I've been stewing on a 5e3 build since I completed my (lovely) 5f2a a couple of months ago. I really like the sound of the traditional 5e3, the fact that it gets hairy early, and the fact that it can push more air than the 5f2. So I've been parts-gathering, but also building a head cab (see also here), acquiring an extension cab, and getting a speaker for it. More on the electronic parts in a minute. For now, here's the poplar head cab I just finished for it: three coats of Minwax Polyshades Honey Pine in satin finish. The dimensions are basically Mojotone's: (H) 11'' x (W) 20'' x (D) 8'', chassis cut-out 12-1/2. Oxblood grille cloth from Mojotone, leather handle from Mojotone, and rubber feet from Mojotone. I've still got to build the back panel and put some cleats in the corners. I decided not to do box joints, because I don't love the look of the end-grain on the edges. So I rabbeted the corners and finished the edges off with a 3/8" roundover bit. I have all hand tools, so I'm very happy that it came out as well as it did. Many thanks to @Tidewater Custom Shop over at The Gear Page for sending me the fantastic baffle screws.
