First id like to thank you all for helping me, your post and links gave me a lot of help in making a informed decision about which veneer products to use.I decided to use the veneer with the psa backer from veneersupplies.com i bought a 4x8 sheet so i would have enough for my actuall speaker boxes,test pieces for stain,and some for my small test box.So far it has worked out great,considering this is my first time using veneer,when the veneer arrived i let it and the substrate pieces acclimate indoors for a week,with the veneer sandwiched between two pieces of mdf. I then started on my small test box,which i did just so i could learn how to apply the veneer, see the best way to trim the edges,and if there was any problems it would be on the test box not my actuall ones.I used the venner scraper with the centerline technique,it was a little hard to get enough pressure at the corners,so after scraping i just put a board on and some weight and it seemed to make the corners stick down much better,as far as trimming the edges the bandit trimmer or using a knife didnt work well for me espically going against the grain,so i used my router and a good flush trimming bit and that worked great. The boxes are ¾ mdf ,sonic barrier dampning foam,Dayton xovers,terminals, and Dayton reference series speakers,the stands are solid oak,center tube filled with sand.Below are some pics.Iam now starting on matching front 3-ways towers. Once again I cannot thank you guys enough for all your help I really appreciate it.
