It's actually just vinyl contact paper. I painted all the edges/ corners with black spray paint so that if there were any spots that I messed up with the vinyl it wouldn't show. I just grabbed some off Amazon. $24 per roll and they were 24"x 196" so one roll easily covered 1 box. Probably not the most durable finish but it matches all the other speakers so I like the look.Wow those look fantastic. Nice work! (fast too!) What kind of veneer/laminate is that? Can you describe the finishing process a bit? Thanks!
The width made it perfect for the top/back/bottom to go on with only cutting to length. The sides required cutting both length and width. It was fairly easy to put on but requires some patience to make sure that there's no bubbles. Just peel a little at a time and work the bubbles out as you go. I didn't bother sanding everything super smooth but it would definitely help it look better as every little bump shows through.
Also since they are downfiring I didn't apply it to the front (or bottom in my case), I just spray painted them black.
Up close you can definitely see some bumps and imperfections, but unless you're looking for them you can't tell. From a few feet away they look professionally built, and I'm anything but. Lol
