Then it really should be called 'ebony coloured vinyl'. I don't use vinyl much in my profession. I prefer to use real wood. But I do use some acrylics and resins when needed to enhance the wood.

It is funny but when you look at real wood veneer speakers, they are inevitably covered in a polyurethane high gloss finish. Effectively covered in plastic. It seems a bit of a waste to take some beautiful wood and then encase it in plastic. at that case you might as well get vinyl to begin with.
