I built the Paul Carmody Speedsters in hickory and walnut.  I upgraded the capacitors to Clarity CSA.  They produce incredible sound.  I'm listening to them almost constantly to complete the break in period as quickly as possible.  Highly recommend this build.  I'll post a build thread if anyone is interested.

Please do.  I know I would love to see a build log.  That would be awesome.  You did a great job.

In my down time from building speakers, we have been renovating.  The floor started going down.

You can see the previous layout of the kitchen.  The fridge was to the right, but that wall will be coming down.

We then created the island and added the new stove.  Had to run a new gas line.  BUt the stove is back up and running.

The fridge sits forward more than we'd like, so I think we will cut out the wall a little and set it back further.

We also laid the floor for the downstairs guest bathroom.

@123toid I love that you can see the uglies in the other room, they sort of catch your eye, and ear i'm sure.

Even though it's not a speaker, I did get some time to build a pair of the last things I bought from a Brick and Mortar Radio Shack. And yes, they both work..

That is actually really cool.  It is too bad the shack has all but died out.

Thanks.

Radio Shack is still online, but nothing like what they used to be, except maybe the prices. 

These kits were BOGO and still cost over $10 a piece. Most other places you can order are around $3 on a regular day. That's really why they went belly up.

My father needs a cane for a little while. I thought I'd try my hand at making him one. I made this out of solid cedar. Not too bad for my first try. Any way I can help a little.

Nice! I had one like that, but the handle was a separate piece glued on top of the cane. Snapped one day and had to get another one. Yours looks like it'll stand the test of time. Hope he recovers fully and can put that in a corner somewhere as a fond reminder of you.
