    That is fantastic looking!

    Something about a traveling wave - I like the looks and resourcefulness!
    Recycling at it's best.

    the grill cover is a cast iron plant stand I found at big lots for 10.00 bucks. I would have spent more for a grill cover online with shipping.

    This was made to resemble an old suitcase per the customer's request.

    On the other hand, a suitcase will give little support for the cone of the driver. I suspect a short life span.

    Actually the suitcase is made of multi layers of wood using lacquer it like a early version of plywood its 1/2 inch thick. So I believe the cone pressures to be sustainable to handle the load on this driver I'm using . Thanks for your concern as to the rest thanks for the nods.
