Now to the finalizing.....

2 walks down two stairs is esier than 1 walk with double the weight.

Where the weight is ... what - about 60 lbs? :yikes: .... any reduction MUST be worth considering. Assuming you know what you're doing of course!

At less than half of that weight I find about 5 paces across a flat floor is about my maximum for lugging an amp. :big_smile:

55 LBS, but the combination of it's size & weight and the fact that both stairs spiral down 180 degrees isn't making it an easy job to get it down.

I did a lot of thinking on what to do with the open front space.
Last weekend I noticed a sidepanel from on old computer tower case and thought.... why not, lets give it a try.
The weight is about the same as the wooden panel I had in mind, but in a way I like the patern with holes it has.

Thanks ElMano, Tolex... can't do that, I calculated the inside space to tight to fit tolex neatly behind the panel and the amp.... Got me satin black paint and just may put boat laquer over that afterwards.

Meanwhile, While working on the panel the holes patern caught my eye and I decided to personalize the panel.
Turned it upside down and drilled-up a number of holes.... Afterwards I couldn't resist to get a glimpse of the endresult and did a quick black spray job on the panel.
Here is the result :dance:
