    Just little projects here and there
  1. I used an oil based Minwax wood finish. The veneer was glued on with hide glue, it came in a powder and I had to heat and mix it myself. Not sure what sort of effect solvents would have on that. I don't have any topcoat picked out yet. Any recomendations for this?
  2. I've been working on building up my first pair of speakers over the last few weeks. I finally finished veneering them (my first time veneering, I know looks meh) last night and was eager to get some stain on. So of course without testing the stain on a scrap of veneer first I just started slapping it on there. Immediate regret. Any ideas on how to fix this catastrophe? I can sand them a bit, but I'm not sure it would be enough. You guys will know better than me Before stain, I like the mappa burl and how knotty it is, obviously my bookmarking wasn't great. Live and learn. After stain, gross. Lost all the appeal they had. Just look blob like now. I did want them to be a bit darker, used the same stain I have on my desk, but this is not what I was looking for. At this point I don't care if they match anything else, I just want them to look decent.
