    Hey guys, I've had my AV1s finished for about a month now, but only recently got my website up to display them. Let me know what you guys think! Thanks to Brian Bunge for his awesome veneering tutorial!

    I could just post "great job" but I'll have to just say what I want to say:
    Which is that they look ordinary and text book generic. [​IMG]
    The craftsmanship looks on par with some of the others I've seen. You going to post how they sound in comparison to another speaker?

    Andrew,

    I'm glad I could be of some help. It looks like you did a very good job on the veneer. The side of that one picture looks like you were sanding across the grain. This is a big no no. Always sand with the grain to keep from scratching the wood.

    Chris,

    I'm not sure whether your comments are meant to be a joke or not, but regardless there's only so much you can do with a predesigned speaker from an artistic standpoint. You can't just take a speaker and turn it into a truncated pyramid like you can a subwoofer.

    Brian

    Jeez, Chris, the poor guy goes to UCLA, he's got enough emotional issues to deal with...like when he gets beaten 27-0 again this year.

    Andrew, I hope my attempts at DIY turn out as "ordinary" as yours. I think you turned in a fine effort. Please post your thoughts on the sound as I am ordering some GR kits soon.
