"I am a self-admitted wood junkie. I am always on the lookout for an interesting piece of wood to bring home. My shop is filled with it. I seldom have a clue what I’ll do with it, until it just ‘hits’ me. That is what happened with this maple burl. I was perusing the piles of wood in the shop, and I imagined this burl as a speaker. I grabbed it, wiped the dust off, and the wheels started turning."
"I didn’t want to cut it up and piece it back together. I wanted to keep it as intact as possible. To maximise the size of speakers I could put in it, the controls would have to be somewhere besides the front. The top would have been the logical choice, but there was no room. Then I decided if I put the controls on the side, I could drill extra-deep holes for the speakers and an extra-deep cut-out for the control module. I felt this should give me plenty of room to connect everything, plus enough room for the oversized battery I planned to put in it."
