Probably one of the most intricate sets I've built and I'm really pleased. I'd say this is as close to perfection as I can get with these hands of mine. All the components are very tight fitting and seamless. Enjoy the photos.

Getting back into the swing of things since the holidays. Here's a nice set. I'm tellin ya, the longer the lacquer cures, the better the buffing. This sat for about 2-3 weeks and buffed flawlessly with the final coat of carnuba wax for added protection.

Been a busy December. I've got a few more sets that will be done in early January however.
These turned out quite nicely. Was going to try a new epoxy finish, but the test pieces didn't turn out. Will take some time to figure out and impliment.

Very nice. Finally got to use the Macadamia block and it was worth the wait. So much detail in the grain pattern. Just pretty. Wish I had a 4-pin XLR amp to try them out. Will have to wait for the owner to report how they sound. BTG Audio supplied the beautiful eight conductor cable.

Gawd, this wood is awesome. I've never worked with it before, but it's beautiful and sounds great. It's got kind of a 3d effect when you look close. Can't tell from the pictures of course, but in person they are nummy. Also, this wood knocked down the sibilance that I've experienced with this model.
Turned out pretty awesome. Nice blonding on the tops and bottoms of each cup. The added depth to the chambers adds alittle extra oomph. In my experience with D2k's, you really can't go too deep with the chambers. I built that set a couple years ago that had like 2.5" chambers and they sounded great to me.
