Re: 2 x 15 cu ft FIQ18 multi tuned ported subs

Bambino,

thanks matey, I have put the first coat off black paint on and wet sanded down. I need to buy some more primer and japlac gloss black paint but I am pretty much skint until I get paid next friday. I am going to try and get some this weekend so I can get that part finished and then route the tops off the back pieces. After that there's not too much left to do.

Will try and get some pics up at the weekend.

cheers guys.

Graham

Re: 2 x 15 cu ft FIQ18 multi tuned ported subs

I am trying to find some websites on veneering and staining but I am struggling to find any.

Any suggestions would be appreciated i.e: what is the best stuff to use prior to staining etc....

I have sheets off american white oak veneer but want to make it cherry to match my monitor audio RS speakers which are cherry too.

I need to make the stain have a gloss finish too.

cheers
Graham

Re: 2 x 15 cu ft FIQ18 multi tuned ported subs

Quite a few months ago i was searching for veneer also, i googled wood veneer and found a site that showed what this guy was the best way and type of veneer to use and there was also gobs of different places to order from. Sorry but it's been so long now i don't remember any of the names of the companys or the DIY site for it, if you don't have any luck let me know and i'll give it a shot.

If you want the gloss look, kinda like the wood is locked inside glass, then you will have to put a clear lacquer over that finished stained cabinet. That kind of finish looks awesome though, and will make you speakers look decidedly cheap in comparison if you pull it off right.

Re: 2 x 15 cu ft FIQ18 multi tuned ported subs

Dan,

Ive been reading about applying a shellac sanding sealer before you apply any stain or varnish.
Is that correct as I found when I did my previous tests straight onto veneer it came out very dark.

I have wet sanded the black again tonight so its nice and smooth ready to get some more paint tomorrow.

cheers
Graham

P.S: Dan I made a bit off a boo boo when I sized up my subs. My veneer sheets are 48" by 96" and my sub is 48" high which means I can't use the 48" dimension and means twice as much veneer. Oops! I really need the veneer to be about 49" as it shrinks.
