I see lots of wood dust.  How do you plan to finish them?

I plan on using Teak Oil, I like the natural look.  My audio shelfs and stands for the mono blocks and speakers are finished in clear lacquer.

Doc B. has made me into a lacquer convert, but oil is certainly appealing for larger items.

I did consider a lacquer finish but I also wanted the speakers to be a little darker, in order for them to stand out.

I'm on the final stages of completing Jager speakers.  The gluing went well all the boards came together nicely, no gaps air tight.  Getting ready to solder caps to woofers, put damping cloth in (no gluing right?)  Ports, connecting wires...… then putting it in to my system. The Home Stretch!!!!!

Thanks to Doc and Gang for all their R&D, trial and error over the years to create such a great set of speakers.
You guys hit a Homerun!!!!!
