I fix my (car) brakes, and I fix my (car) stereo. The rest, oh well.
The new speaker did not fit in the old speaker mount, despite being the same “size”. Marine plywood to the rescue. This is the second one I’ve made like this, and it went unexpectedly well. A dremel is wonderful — and I just set the saber saw at 45 degrees, and free-handed a marked circle, and it came out nice. But, again, marine plywood wins big — strong, no cutting, no splitting. I don’t think I could have cut low-grade plywood or regular wood that close without cracking it in the process.
