That is a pretty amazing implementation, in fact I wanna do that with my sr 60's but with aluminum (or even carbon fiber) 

 

Might I be able to ask how you made the hinge

The design is a Marshall Major hinged inspired

Anyone have recommendations on where to get the wood cup grill material from? I tried a kitchen sieve I bought from a hardware shop but it isn't very solid/refined. Any particular types of mesh people often use to get a finished, professional look here?

I used a couple of cheap tea strainers from my local supermarket.  The wire is stainless steel and a little on the thin side, but not bad looking on my stock plastic cups.  Though probably not refined enough for woodies.  The result is a slightly dished grille.  Much cheaper than the DIY stores around here.

A lot of folks get pencil holders and magazine racks from dollar stores and cut them up...

I used mesh from a cheap laptop fan cooler .

I recommend seaching for 'stainless wire mesh' at eBay! http://www.ebay.com/itm/STAINLESS-STEEL-WOVEN-WIRE-MESH-filter-grading-sheet-/251198345904?pt=UK_BOI_Medical_Lab_Equipment_Lab_Supplies_ET&var=&hash=item3a7c9692b0 <- Here's a seller that has good info to boot, altho I've seen some sellers waaay cheaper. Search and thee shall find! I seem to remember measuring the stock mesh on my SR-325's at 12 squares per inch. I'm not sure if that translatse into #12 or #14, but I would say that a #10 mesh would do well. Going with a wider mesh seems absurd, but then again it's your choice ;)

 

EDIT: Store link, for when auction runs out: http://stores.ebay.com/Inoxia-Ltd?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

Nice, exactly what I was looking for! Do you have a mesh size to recommend?

Whoops, totally didn't read that properly before posting. Thanks for the helpful recommendation!

Does anyone know if applying finish to the inside of the cup affects sound quality?
