Selecting and preparing the right log
This is probably the most important step. You'll need a log that is big enough to fit speakers inside. I used 4" car speakers. They were the smallest I could find. This log is also 40" long which is perfect to fit on the desk, or on a fireplace mantle if it was being used for a TV.
Once I found the perfect log, I stripped all the bark off of it. You'll see as we move on, that I left some discolouring on the log for more of a rustic "barky" feel.
