Hardboard - not for gluing

After a year of using my narrow bedside table, the glued joints failed during a quarrel between our cat and dog. I was surprised to find the surface of the hardboard gave rather than the laser-cut edges.

1x12 speaker cabinet

Built in 2005 to augment my Aguilar GS 112. I used a Carvin PS12 speaker. Sounds great. Cabinet hardware (corners, handle, port holes, and jack plate) are from Penn Fabrication - same as Aguilar. The triangle pattern mesh grille was laser cut from PETG while I was working at UCLA. PETG is resilient to bending - not brittle like Plexiglas.
