I’ve been working on a cherrywood fireplace mantle this week. Had some leftover lumber, enough to knock together a new cab for my 70s Vibro Champ.

Post a picture in 6 months after it has darkened. That will really increase the already significant drool factor.

Very nice work. I like the dovetail joints you used instead of the usual finger joints.

Finger joints have more surface area, but I’ve found that old glue and years of “jerking” up on the handle to get the amp off the ground loosen finger joints. I’ve fixed a bunch of cabs with loose finger joints. Dovetails actually pull the joint together tighter when you pull up on the handle. Plus…they look pretty cool.
