So the time has come to build from scratch a combo cabinet, complete with tolex and piping. Is there any hints and tips for me e.g. How do I get the corners nice and smooth, how do I do the piping etc.
The actual woodwork should not be a big problem, I have complete drawings of every part in the cabinet and I should be able to cut them and assemble them properly. The thing that worries me is the tolexing, and to make it look like it was done by someone who knew what they were doing. It is going to (I hope) look something like this:
I've contacted few people who build cabs but they either wanted more moolahs than available or they said they cannot do a cab like this. So I'll have to do it myself then I guess. Any hints regarding sources of tolex, grill cloth etc will be greatly appreciated. If you CAN build one like this for me (or maybe just handle the upholstering), PM me please and we can discuss.
I think it will be fun building an entire amp this time round. I'll have some help, naturally (I don't own much in the way of tools).
