Nice! How in the world did you get the bend in the wood? Very smooth.

Best,

Geno

P.S. The stone component stands at each end of the fireplace are very cool!!!

Geno,

The technique is called "kerf bending" and is held together by wood glue. Simple design. Difficult execution.  Making some for a customer and now everybody wants them.

The stonework came with the house. I think it was designed for firewood. Lemonade from lemons in my case.

Thank you for the kind words.

Very cool, JEllis.  Thanks for sharing.  What kind of plywood did you use?

What are your thoughts about the stone fireplace?  I have a similar setup, though more rough and jagged.  Despite the hard surface it images beautifully.

Impressive! I cool around with woodworking and that process on expensive nowadays ply had to be a bit nerve wracking.

I would say the stone fireplace works well as a diffuser. Room is slightly treated and does well.

Birch plywood is more than it used to be but I didn't make speakers back then.
