    T-nut. Yeah, that's what it's called. Missed that in your first post.

    The reason I'm not using them is that the required baffle hole is pretty big--not a problem with, like, 1/2" plywood but with the quarter inch I'm using, more trouble. So...

    Also, take note that the coarse threads are reverse threads. So, as you tighten the nut, you will not loosen the threads buried in the baffle material.

    I also agree that the Baltic Birch Plywood probably doesn't need glue (or wood hardener like I used) but, it was just a little bit of insurance that both @dunehunter and I kinda liked.

    Maybe I did okay, but @jsnwhite619 wins this round for sure. The ones he cut in his Georgia Pine cabs look wonderful!

    Thanks! I'm still oiling and sanding this thing every few days. This was yesterday. The rascal is heavy though -- 15 pounds empty!

    You are right!; those joints were perfect. If you can finish your cab without a fabric covering and have it look that nice, you've created something special.

    I love the "chevron" look at the corners with that strong grain giving way to a cool pattern...
