    Anybody good with veneer on MDF?

    Not talking about the cheap substitutes Parts Express has...anyone here have experience with real veneer on MDF jobs. If so, I've got a proposition to make

    Need some boxes built. If you've done veneering jobs before, feel free to PM me and I'll give you the info for a quote

    Yeah.

    But real cabinet-grade veneer is miles better than the roll-on crap PE stocks.

    Re: Anybody good with veneer on MDF?

    have you tried doing it yourself?
    1.) I live in a dorm room.
    2.) All of my tools bigger than a socket wrench and soldering iron are currently 200 miles away.
    3.) I'd like to get this done before I move out for summer.
    4.) Unfortunately, my teachers don't share my notion that audio > school, so I have these annoying things called classes to go to

    All of those add up to me not being able to do any fabrication until the summer, at the earliest.

    how do you cut it. i thought it was rather thick, are air bubbles really that much of an issue?

    Think you just use a carpenter's knife to cut it.

    If you leave too large of a bubble the verneer will crack very easily.

    Think he could build speaker cabinets and give me a quote if I gave him the exact dimensions?

    Re: Anybody good with veneer on MDF?

    To cut it you go to lowes or someplace and they have blades you put in the utility knives. Its like doing a kitchen floor ( i use to install flooring) it will be called either a hook blade, or I forget the other name the call it but it has 2 ends that look like a C and its a safe easy way of cutting stuff like that. You just take it slow.For the bubbles, you would need to use a HEAVY roller. Something with weight that will really stick it down, once you have a bubble that you cant get out your fukd. A small hole in it will make it peel away very easy.

    Re: Anybody good with veneer on MDF?

    I havent worked with the stuff, but its the same style as vynal. It is very weak while it is not glued down. You have to be easy with it because you can make a mis cut soooo easy and mess it all up. And it will tear with your hands with NO problem. But once it is glued down and in place and sets its stronger than anything. Have you ever tried to tear up a kitchen floor, it is a pain in the butt to get the stuff up will take a while as long as the install laid it down right. A 12x12 room will take hrs to tear up and scrape, as long as it was installed right. Yet then you see other floors were the guy does a half fast job on the outsides and not the WHOLE thing and it rips tears easy.
