Two more screws to get rid of that front gap, and a Peavey logo would make that thing perfect. Would look like something bought out of a store.

That look ssooooo awesome, and the stain will make it look 1000x times better. Also Another idea for a front plate, Take another piece of solid wood and rout it so its only like, a square, hrmm trying to think of a way to explain it. Like an outline, so there is no middle hahaha. And then take a piece of plexiglass and put it over it, so its see through. Here kind of like this.

Then put the lighting behind it.

Okay guys, I ran into a bunch of problems preping for staining.

First, the corners I am using didnt fit right, so i had to sand. Sanding kinda turned into rounding all the edges/corners of the head.

Second, When i chambered the holes for the screws, they tore out the side, so i will have to pick up some wood putty today, and will start on that hopefully.

Once i get the wood puddy, i'll fill everything, then re drill further in so i don't go out the side. Then i will chamber the screws in, and cover with puddy so their hidden and sand flush.

311- Well i am using those metal corners, but the ones i have (the ones of the vk112) are rounded, so i had to round the corners, and when i did, i kinda did the sides a little to so to make it look good i rounded the sides.

I'm waiting for my garage to warm up right now, then i will put the wood puddy over the holes. Then re drill, chamber, then apply more wood puddy. Then sand, and hopefully stain.

hey man looks good,
one warning though, what is the ohm output on your amp? Say its 8 ohms, you can only put a 8ohms cab or speaker through it

So i stained the head... And it looked awful, i did everything right, and even used the pre condition stuff. It was dark in spots, light in spots, and ugly in spots. So I went up to Joann Fabric and picked up some vinyl for 6.50$ a yard! awesome deal. I think i will start today, not sure but hopefully will.

It's open in the back to help with heat, it stays cool. I just made a vid with it, will post in a couple.

Necro- No, I will cover it with grill cloth.

Thanks Guys.

So i recorded the vid, but my stupid self put it in front of the amp and it overloaded the mic pretty bad, plus all you can see in the video is my ass, haha.

Will do another one tomorrow.
