    I just used grill cloth on 1/2 pine painted white, and rounded over on the edges, and it sticks out too much and is not very appealing.

    How thin can it be made, and got any pics?

    If you're careful you can stretch grill cloth over a 1/8" Masonite frame....

    And don't be afraid to try something other than black. On my sonosub I used some metallic silver cloth for the DIY grills and it came out looking great....

    I had used white grill cloth to match my ceiling. It goes over a rectangular port.

    I will have to try masonite or something for a very thin grill.
