Woodworking speaker cab ?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by KingOfAmps, Dec 5, 2003.


  1. The previous owner of a speaker cab I just purchased had drilled some 5/16" holes around each of the speaker openings for some reason.

    The holes go all the way through.

    I know that I could just fill them up with caulk or wood putty but I want to know the real way that a furniture/cabinet maker or woodworker/craftsman type would fix this.

    I'm thinking I'll need to clean out the holes by drilling them out possibly to a larger size. Then shaping some wooden dowels and gluing. Am I on the right track? If so, will any old dowel do? What about the glue? :confused:

    That's how I'd so it... Find some standard size dowling, obtain the appropriate drill bit, drill and glue in dowels. Any type of wood would get the job done... Pine and Hickory doweling is pretty common...
