finished my Forte 1 grills


Recommended Posts

They came more white in color but I felt it looked a bit too loud in appearance so I stained them in brewed coffee for a day an hung them out to dry naturally in the sun. I wanted to match them as close to my Dynaco A10’s as much as possible. I’ll get the Klipsch badges next. Pic 1

They look stunning; what an incredible job!  The coffee staining is genius, where did you get the idea?

 

I just always remember when I dripped it on my t shirts it was a B...... to get the stain out. Turned out perfectly!

I like the wood finish on your Forte's, it makes the grills pop.

 

What did you do to the wood finish?  It doesn't look like a factory finish.

 

Yes, thank you, these are from Klipsch Restorations in Texas. These are African padauk. He has a pair of II’s in the same finish on Ebay I think.

How big are the pieces of fabric that you received?

That is a nice job on the grills.  Is each order from the vendor only adequate for one grill for the Forte?

 

I also went to the restoration site in Texas.  Wow.  Some of them are too much for my conservative taste, but boy there are a few that I really like.
