I veneered my speakers with some self adhesive veneer. I found it at the local lumber shop. I had never seen it before. It had some 3m adhesive on the back and a peel off cover. Went on just like contact paper. Couldn't have been better for a first time veneerer.

I veneered my kit speakers with some iron on melamine which went on fine and the panels look good but finishing the edges was a nightmare. Even using an edge router requires a spacing jig to keep a consistant edge.

I did some others using an iron on wood veneer which has the huge advantage that you can use a sander to cleanup the edges. It does require staining and varnishing to finish but looks very nice when completed.
