As my first blog post on CBN, I'd like to share the results of a busy weekend just gone:

Still a bit of tidying up here and there to do, am still not satisfied with the inbuilt amp/speaker combination (not enough volume), but will try with maybe a different speaker and/or amp.

Try flipping your speaker around facing in .  it should act like a bass box and give  fuller volume.

Magic marker , auto detail paint , or sand and paint  the scratches , or use larger grommets or hide it with mason jar lid stickers .

Nice finish, classy!

Thanks for your comments guys!  Unfortunately, the clear lacquer took a turn for the worse by he sound holes, so if anyone has any tips to repair this, they would be most welcome.  Maybe I should paint some flames or something around the holes to disguise the damage...
