No, no - leave the dog house exposed. For me that is the real eye catcher and defining feature of the LS. Love the cane top grills. With bottom grills it becomes a Belle wanna' be.

Naked bottoms, covered tops - hmmmm that can be taken more than one way(:

WOW!  those are really nice, "Full Range"   :emotion-21:

I will most likely just use Velcro.  Some small vertical strips will be installed to secure to.

To me, the grills will bring it all together.  I love how the bin grills accentuate the triangles.  Going to look MUCH BETTER than "naked", IMO of course...

 

Certainly not a "wanna be".  I prefer the Scala over the Belle...

Magnets work a lot better, they are surprisingly strong

Just one pair of button magnets per grill is needed

And I also like grills - good trim and colour gives the La Scala a polished look

Like some women, they may or my not look good with clothes on or off.  In other words, I can take them Lascalas anyway.

my finger tips feel like they have been rubbed to nubs from working with that cane :mad:

 

...other than a few tweaks, bass bin grills complete :D

Looks great. What kind of Cane material did you go with ?

 

Thanks Jason!

 

The cane is called "British small weave" from MojoTone.

Cane can be stiff and hard to work with but worth every bit of effort once its done.

I sprayed the working edge with water.  Made it much easier to mold around the frame but still brutal on the finger tips...

I just soak the material in warm water, makes it much easier.

 

You would need to seal the frames to keep the moisture away but just another small step and saves your skin from damages, a little anyways.
