Pics of Finished Kit 261's by Jlaine's F.I.L.

Postby saxman » Sat Oct 07, 2006 2:38 pm

Thanks again to Josh's father-in-law for the immaculate craftsmanship on these. They fit in real nice with our new home. They aren't the best pictures as they are taken with our bulit in 2 m.p. camera on our camcorder. I had about 4 more pictures I wanted to upload but the stupid anti freedom of speech software they use at the library prevents everything from working smoothly. I can't wait to have internet at home again.

Maybe I'll get some better pictures someday. These should do for now.

By the way... they sound just as good as they look.

'sniff' I really like the molding and veneer. It takes me back to those old days before enclosures were made by the Chinese with shrink-wrapped plastic coatings...

In other words, I like 'em!

If it's a veneer...why don't all the sides look similar, and why is there an exposed wood edge? I think he actually finished them with clear, but I could be wrong...

Either way, they look good :)

[quote="ballstothewall"]That dosen't look like veneer to me... ]Good eyes. It's not, look at the grain of the wood at the corners . Very good craftsmanship, again. Now, tell us how they sound, again.:)

I'm thinking it's veneer, but not the really poor quality stuff that PE sells, it's not rotationally shaved, but rather it's a direct bisection of the log, more expensive but actually looks like wood when it's done. In the 5th picture you can see a seam line in the grain. It looks to me like some solid quarter round was used to join the front edges, and the back appears to be a solid piece perhaps.

They look phenominal, i'm impressed. Forget how they sound, i want pictures of how they went together.

Well, I know that this is an "old" post but I just saw it.

I was actually there during some of the construction. I built the x-ovr's and installed them. :D

These things sounded amazing when we had them playing, outside. Yes, outside.

Dan does amazing work. He has done work for a few members on this forum, and we all love the work he does. He did my HT sub box, n0ph0's 641's, TL's 261's (iirc) and these that you see here. To top it all off, he is a good guy.

Brooks, what do you mean by a better receiver? Isn't the one that you have teh bawmb? :D
