    DIY fabric covering

    I’ve done this and I found leather actually much easier to work with than traditional covering. It stretches and can be compressed to hide a variety of cutting errors. After much experimentation, I found that plain wood glue is the best adhesive for applying leather to a cabinet.

    Sealed cab design wonderings???

    Well then… the experimentation shall begin. The cabinet has been cut out and dry assembled for a year so it’s time to glue it together. The shell is 3/4” clear pine with half blind dovetail joints. I’ll glue that up and then install cleats front and back so both can be removable. I have front...

    Sealed cab design wonderings???

    The cab I’m building is a single 10” and has the internal dimensions of 16-1/2” wide, 11-1/2” tall and 6-1/2” deep. Yes, the goal is to get a bit more bottom end.

    Sealed cab design wonderings???

    We have the open back tweed cabinets with their lively, thin speaker baffles. Wondering what a sealed speaker cabinet with the same type of baffle would sound like? How about a lively, thin back on the cabinet also?

    Have tube…really want to put it in a build

    It’s a standard 9-pin, a little shorter than an EL84. Don’t know what it could be used for but would be fun to have it in something.

    No Really Dear, It Followed Me Home.

    I’ve had multiple experiences going to check out a tonewheel Hammond the owner claimed to not work only to find that they were unaware of the starting procedure.

    Who makes money making music on the forum ?

    I got back into playing out just as C19 hit. We are fortunate to live near 2 states that did not impose much in the way of restrictions so the gigs came. I knew my wife wasn’t thrilled about my return to the stage so I set it up that my band income would go towards my teenage daughter’s...
