    Hey all,


    I'm having a friend of mine who is a pretty darn accomplished woodworker help me build a 1X12 and/or 2X12 cabinet. We are plannning on building it out of a nice hardwood and staining it rather than tolexing. Eventually, the plan is to build a matching head cab for a small, bedroom-ish type amp.

    For some inspiration and ideas as to specifics of construction, I would love to see some of your pictures of cabinet construction. Additionally, dimensions of 1X12 and 2X12 cabinets would also be helpful.

    Right now I am leaning towards building an oversized 1X12 - something this size:

    Any pictures of the process or at the very least the unfinished/untolexed barebones frame of the cabinet would be great. I'm having some issues visualizeing how the grill, baffle and speakers are attached.

    Thanks - I've seen those. I was kind of hoping for some real pictures of cabs people have built around here....

    search for threads started by southbayAmpWorks. I recall him doing a few reviews on cabinets he bought and refurbished.
    lots of detail including how to wrap and pull tolex, run a line for the white trim lines etc..
