Excellent idea, and fantastic execution! It's details like that that separate regular woodworkers from real craftsmen. You really did a fabulous job on that piece. I have to ask you what stain you used - that color is intriguing.

Jmark You're welcome Vince.

( I love the burnt red color too, just need to find someone who wants it on their speakers! LOL )

302 Z28 That is the very material I am using, didn't know what it was called though. Thanks Jmark .

Jmark Thanks for the compliment Dusty. I played heck finding a suitable covering for my speaker doors until an audio guy mentioned the Ponte cloth. It's super stretchy and glues well with 3M fastbond 90 on to MDF.

Dusty82 I know my comment has nothing to do with interiors, but I had to say Great Work Mark! You don't see many built in pieces that feature a break-front design like that, and your example is flawless. I'm a former cabinetmaker (an injury forced me out of the business, but I can still do it as a hobby) and we're considering a built in unit to replace a closet in one of our bedrooms. We were leaning toward an Arts & Crafts style, but your break-front has me rethinking that idea.

Thanks for the tip on the speaker grill cloth too!

Fabulous work!

Jmark The fabric that I use on my entertainment centers that I build is called Ponte cloth. It's a polyester stretchy fabric that is available at most sewing/fabric stores. It comes in black, brown, red and blue where I shop. If the store is not familar with that name, just ask them to show you to the stretch polyester bolts and find the one you like.

Or..........Put them under the package shelf and cut a hole pattern through the package shelf directly above the speakers.

302 Z28 Most, if not all new high quality speakers today their cones are of polymer construction, very few are paper any longer. As such they are more imune from sun damage IMO. Custom stereo shops use speaker grill cloth to cover speakers with. The cloth is usually black and is not a felt or carpet like material. It is more of a screen like cloth that can be stretched over an MDF frame that the speaker is mounted to. The cloth can also be painted to match your interior color. I had a hard time finding any around my part of the country. I eventually scored some through a friend of mine who knew someone who does custom stereo work at home. I have no idea where he gets it.
