PostSubject: Tried my hand at making me some fiberglass speaker boxes   February 4th 2014, 10:44 am

I've been wanting to do this for awhile so I decided to bite the bullet and give it a shot. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but it wasn't a lot of fun either. First I started out by coming up with the designs and making the boxes out of some 1x3's and 1/4" plywood, then stretched a old fleece blanket over the frame. Some people use old t-shirts instead of fleece and I think it might be easier then the fleece, I might try it if I do another one. Once I got the fleece to where I was happy with it I put 3 coats of resin on it then the fun began, the sanding. After sanding the resin to where I thought it was ready for some filler(bondo) I put a thing coat of filler on it. After letting it sit over night(or longer) I sanded the filler down and went back over any spots that needed touching up. In the sanding I started with 60 grit to get the resin and filler to the shape I wanted then just keep going to a finer grit ending up with steel wool. f your thinking of doing this I would highly recommend doing it when the weather is warm so you can do it outside the garage/workshop because it a very smelling and messing job. Heres some pics of the process I took, I forgot to take some of the frames before I put the fleece on it(sorry).

Thanks guys! The pics make them look better than they do in person but they turned out pretty good. After doing it I see why people charge what they do for them, it's not that hard just so time consuming. I actually sanded so much that one of my fingers started to bleed.
