Default Piano Wrap for Speaker Cabinets?

Hi All,

Does anyone know of (or have tried) to change a veneer finish on some speaker cabinets with a Piano finish using either a vinyl or paint wrap, or another technique?

I have some well finished original wood veneer cabinets and I am keen to update their look with the new Piano gloss styles. Is this realistic with these new hi-tech wraps?

BR

Simon

Default I hope someone knows :-)

I did some research today also into real wood veneers in Piano and this also seems to be rare..

I hope there is a high tech wrap solution!

Cheers

Sime

Thank you! I was wondering how hard this would be once even finding some sheets to use. What is the typical way to accurately trim the edges so they join perfectly at the edges? 45 degree champfers on the inner edge?

Cheers
