"Rosenut" La Scala veneer pictures

Recommended Posts

This lonely La Scala with a dark history dreamed of being in the spotlight and becoming the center "channel" of attention.

Surface mounted horns on easy swap motor board.

"Rosenut" color created by applying secret formula (Varathane Cherry #445 Premium Gel Stain) onto American walnut veneer, then treating with BLO (boiled linseed oil).

Picture here with soft incandescent mood lighting.

Bi-amped and brazen, this La Scala is now proudly playing front center for the All-Heritage home theater team.

Nicely done sir. What finish is on the horns (hope I didn't read over that)?

The K-400 horn is painted with Valspar Metallic, Aged Copper 66027. It is a good match to the copper color cones of my Klipsch Reference speakers.

While I had the horn out of the cabinet, I also applied some Dynamat anti-vibration sheets.

Thanks for the compliments. Now that I have been enjoying the good looks and sounds for a while, I can say that it was a fun project. It was a lot of work for a novice woodworker, but very rewarding. Here are some more pictures.
