    @Geeze Any chance you can check the five imgur links before the last one? I'd love to see the details but there's a little placeholder for those 5 shots that says "the image does not exist or is no longer available".

    Thanks! Makes the "story" that much more interesting, to me anyhow.

    Beautiful work as always!

    Do you prefer fastening the speakers at 12 / 3 / 6 and 9 o'clock (over 2 / 4 / 8 and 10 o'clock)?

    Hey Leon!

    Not from a design / structural standpoint - it's easier to plot the holes. I've never done it the other way and haven't encountered issues when using 3/4" BB.

    I'm jelly of your work again Geeze! Nice craftsmanship as usual.

    Yes. I have a 1960a that someone stripped and lacquered, got bored with and posted it on CL. It was listed so long that the dude was going to strip out the speakers and use the cab as furniture. I drove a few hours to pick it up from him and he gave me some of the cash back on the spot just for giving the cab a good home. Now I need a 1960b to go with it :D

    Got it, yeah, hard to imagine structural issues either way really. I guess I've gotten into the habit of using 2, 4, 8 and 10 because I've built a lot of smaller combos in which the speakers are really "packed in" and/or where the angle of the baffle makes it difficult to get a screwdriver into the 6 o'clock position, if you follow me. I have a couple of template that make the 2, 4, 8 and 10 o'clock holes easy to plot...

    That's the thinking that got me here! That and some perfect width wood, time now that my man-child is installed at college and my catastrophic man cave that is Kryptonite to all women.

    that ... is stunning, you have no idea how badly I want that in my music room.

    did you put feet on the bottom of the B cab?

    Every good boy deserves a full stack!

    I did - 1.5" diameter 1" tall. I've owned a set of casters to install on something but they never seem to land on anything. I find the red wheeled cart from the office pic to be much more versatile.

    That full stack in that timber is stunning. Maybe the nicest looking stack I've seen since I cannot remember when. Wow. I'm guessing it's too nice to be gigging with though? Incredible work.

    I drag cabs & heads out to jams and such a couple times a month. Yes they get the occasional ding but those are fix able. For full on jigging it would be flight case time.

    What have you got internally? How have you wired it up?

    The paint job is beautiful. But what's under the hood? Traditional wiring? Stereo? Still empty? Enquiring minds want to know.

    Two RI GB's and a pair of late 70's BB's in 16ohm series parallel in the B cab, A cab 4 V30's 8ohm s/p - I've been looking for 16 ohm V30's to swap so I can run the whole thing together with my mom in front.

    Hmm...

    Most of my wood pile is various grades of pine
    My girls are still young enough to be adorable and innocent
    My wife spends as much or more time in the "man cave" than I do

    Hence, my soldering iron is cold :( and my wood remains uncut.

    OK, two things -

    First - You gotta adjust your thinking - your wife NEEDS something - a cab / amp / guitar related stuff. Even if she doesn't 'use' it. Find some pretty wood - it will encourage you.

    Second - The women I'm referring to would be looking to change my relationship status - a heinous development! Hug them girls a lot while you can! My boy is in his second week at university and I am in serious child withdrawal prompting serious project planning.

    I'm taking Friday off for an exotic wood safari at a couple of places that are only open during the week. Why you might ask? Because when I have it at home it talks to me and that my friend is how projects get started here. Forget need or money, think creation and art!

    I think something this beautiful would be a much easier sell to a significant other than a standard black tolex cab with ugly plastic corners. This looks more attractive than the woodwork on most people's furniture.
