Trying to navigate around the non-90 deg corners is going to be a bitch. I think Axiom groves the veneer somehow, then rolls it over the corners.


For a picture of a cabinet ready to be assembled, gives you an idea of how the vinyl fits into the 'fold', see the pics posted on our '04 Axiom Factory tour.

Thanks, PM, for sharing the process. Makes total sense. My M60/500 QS8's cab's. are seamless and a great veneering job, even if everyone but me is using CNC. The application of the catalyzed finish isn't great though, as there are grain voids in the finish in places (which shouldn't even exist on maple), but I was too lazy to complain, and not willing to live w/o 'em once they were here.

The speakers look very good. Unique.

How did you adhere the veneer to the vinyl? What do you use to trim it with? Can you ask your friend what the techniques are for bending it around corners?

Michael, check a few posts back re trimming the veneer, there's a special(inexpensive) tool for this such as the Bennett Veneer Trimming Tool. Basically a handle with a small, sharp, replaceable, planing knife in it.

Oh...thanks Adrian. I'm still on my fist shot of espresso. Takes me three or four to become human.

So how do you cut the sheets to a rough dimension before adhering them to the work?

I haven't done any veneer work, but like others here, I've often wondered about doing the exact same thing as yourself...veneering some nice wood over vinyl. From what I researched before, I believe there are some specialty saws like this one from Lee Valley or maybe a very sharp Xacto or utility knife perhaps?

I would think a flush cut router bit would work well for trimming edges smooth
