I was hired when I convinced a fantastic sculptor and luthier, Ian Schneller, that I could transform the painstakingly slow handmade process of his speakerhorns, speaker cabinets, amps and more to a CNC driven operation. Time savings alone is 3 months minimum for any significant quantity. I modeled everything in SolidWorks and have been cutting some of the materials myself as well as sourcing local CNC router/knife/laser and waterjet cutting for a variety of applications, including instrument production. Most of the horns are made from molded recycled paper, dryer lint and baking soda. Towards the bottom you'll see new silicon and vacuum infusion molding experiments we're working on.
