Spectacular Speakers!!

I agree, the aesthetics are a huge part of the pleasure of loudspeakers, and of course the audio quality needs to match and visa versa. I'm collaborating to build a set that meet this dual criteria and I would LOVE to get some Mukassar (ebony) type veneer with that great contrast. Any idea how to source that in Australia given your woodworking knowledge?


Quite a few veneer manufacturers/importers in Australia. I’d contact New Age Veneers in the first instance. Makassar Ebony won’t come cheap!

My how the world has changed 


when I was a kid you could get Macassar ebony in planks 


a violin maker I knew had a stash of bona fide Sri Lankan ebony , the real McCoy,  in 12 inch wide planks 

honduras mahogany was cheap and everywhere 


now I shudder going to a timber yard where everything is priced like it was spot Gold
