Hey y’all! I’ve had the fives for about 6 months or so and something about the natural oak just doesn’t look the best to me. I’d like to refinish these with a darker stain, but I just don’t know how to go about it. I know that refinishing veneer is challenging and I also don’t know how thin the veneer is on these. I know this isn’t that big of a deal, but if anyone has any advice I’d love to hear it. Thanks!
I am in love with these La Scalas and would like to found out "how they did it" finiis, veneer (oak?), grill support and all the other details. This is the look I am after for my really beat up 1976 La Scalas. Thanks to all.
Don't know if this is the right place to ask, but I purchased my walnut Klipschorns in 1977. I've hauled them through six states in multiple moves over the years and upgraded the drivers and crossovers and such in 1989. Two questions... After the latest move, they've been in storage for the last two years and I'm getting them ready for a new, custom built room. Over time, my wife who doesn't believe these works of art's beauty should stand alone, has adorned them with decorations that have left rings and marks. Regular restoration miracles in a bottle will not remove them and I believe the only true remedy is light sanding. IS THE WALNUT JUST VENEER, AND IF SO, HOW THICK? Second, would you recommend updating the works again. Just before I put them in storage two years ago, they sounded great, but since I'm refinishing, have their been any changes worthwhile since the upgrade in 1989 that would warrant the expense and effort? Thanks for the help.
I purchased a pair of excellent Forte 1's with some typical water ring damage on the tops. I would like to Refinish these but I am having trouble deciding what wood they are. To me they look like Walnut or Cherry wood thoughts? Also I would like to refinish them in a distressed oak like finish would this hurt the value. (I am fairly skilled with wood finishing and have produced server pieces of furniture but never refinished speakers.) I also plan to rebuild the crossovers and upgrade the tweeters. Also the paper tags are long gone so I can't look up the codes.
