One of the first things I did when moving everything into the RV was yank out the crackly, flat toned, paper coned, junk speakers. Unfortunately, the speaker covers didn’t fit back on (they were designed for those specific speakers). What kind of malarky is that? They looked like junk anyways… white, plastic.
We can do better. (Even if it’s 4 months later, right?)
Originally, I thought I’d just make some wood covers, stain 'em, and screw em in. But that just seemed kind of basic. Why not try and make everyone at these campgrounds think I’m burning dead things and sacrifice some leather?
A few iterations later, here’s what I came up with.
One is different than the other… I decided to engrave a lip for the leather to flush mount to the surface. One cover has a deep enough engrave - the other doesn’t. It’s a subtle difference, but worth remaking the one for.
Now, to get better at finishing. At both the wood and leather. The leather could probably use a second coat (I used black India Ink). The stain is Mission Oak Minwax PolyShades (3 coats); the third coat really brings a lot of depth to the color, which I liked.
