My nephew is only 6 years old, but he really likes music. Although a little early he asked me for a Lumineers CD for Christmas even though he would have no where to play this CD unless he was in a vehicle. So this got me thinking that its never too early to have a good stereo. So I'm giving him the EMPs I have hooked up to my computer setup. He has my brothers old Iphone (no service) that he keeps some music on, so I also got him a refurbished Denon 1912 with Airplay from Accessories4less so he can use his Iphone as his music source. So of course I need to replace the EMPs and fuzz inspired me to try out the Mandolins since his turned out so nice and he appears to really like them. I plan on finishing these with the Pelin Burl veneer above with the Wenge trim around the front that I'll round over. My test piece of using the iron-on technique turned out okay, but I got a couple of cracks. I think I used too much glue as it took twice as long to dry as it should have and this caused the veneer to really curl up almost into a bowl shape even though I had it taped down. I ignorantly tried pushing the edges down thinking it would give without harm, but I was wrong. I'll do another test piece with some veneer softener and less glue before I try applying it to the speaker. I'm still at the dry fit stage as I haven't actually glued anything yet, so the veneering stage is down the road. Once I'm done with these I plan on getting back to my Tritons.
