Hello everyone, my first post here. I wish I had asked for advice on how to make good joints a couple of years ago when I built a pair of speakers, but since I didn't and since I didn't do a very good job, I'm asking for advice on how to fix a mistake.
The speakers are made from 3/4" Baltic Birch ply, they are 40" W x 30" H x 20" D. They are glued and screwed (I used the Kerg product for screwing), and they are very solid and perform great. The problem is the fit and finish.
As you can see in the pic the top is not flush with the front. The same issue pretty much persists throughout the build, but the pic shows the worst of it. I assumed the screws would pull everything tight and flush, but that's not how it works. Dry fit was damn good, especially considering I used a circular saw and a rail. And considering this is the first thing I built out of wood since Mom's spice rack back in High School
So here is my question (I plan to have these professionally painted):
How to get these ready for paint? Plane, epoxy, a combination of plane and epoxy?
I'd love to just start over and do it right, but man that's a lot of work (there's a lot of woodwork inside the speaker as well) and I'm still finding sawdust in my garage from the first time.
Thanks for any help!
