Hey Guys,

I posted this over at lo-fi.

Figured id post it here as well. Sorry for the shitty guide.

Hey Guys,

Tutorial for wood panel SP-404.(or other samplers)

Ill give a pretty simple breakdown with steps and images.

1. Materials Needed

-SP-404(sx)

-10mil Wood Veneer(preferably paper backed)
I got a sample from a local distributor that fit perfect so i didnt have to buy the entire 4x8 sheet.

Google these guys!!!

-X Acto Knife Image

-120 or 160 grit sandpaper

-A laminating adhesive similar to this: [url="http://www.usknobs.com/Aerosol-Contact-Adhesives-High-Strength-Spray-Adhesive-Low-VOC-Can-Size-13-oz..html"]http://www.usknobs.com/Aerosol-Contact-Adhesives-High-Strength-Spray-Adhesive-Low-VOC-Can-Size-13-oz..html[/url]
I used choice brands 655 adhesive. Contact cement can work as well!


-a cutting board

-minwax stain Image

-Sealer of some sort ( make sure it seals wood) Image

-a couple free hours.


2. We begin

Starting by spraying the adhesive on the back of the veneer and the face of the 404. You can sand the 404 but i just washed mine off for a clean surface to adhere too. Wait until the glue is tacky but wont transfer to your hand. Like actually put your hand in it and if it doesnt come off the veneer or 404 your good.

bending the corners were a bit tricky because it wanted to split and snap when forming to the face plate so i took a warm washcloth and applied hot water on the edges. Worked quite nice. I let mine sit all night in a nice dry place( my closet )

Sorry for late process pictures but here it is bonded with the some cut out.Image

Once it is applied start cutting out the buttons with your x-acto knife on the back side. Use a cutting board and go slow. These things are sharp as hell.

after a while it starts looking real nice

Well rough but nice....



sand all the holes and edges....



Anyways.


I sanded the shit out of it and forgot to take pictures but i started staining.

2 COATS!!!!

Look at her!!!

Let it dry all night again....

come back the next day and seal that thing up....

Hey!

Somehow these massive photos work in that we can get a real close-up view, but wow, pretty hard-going checking this out... would love if you could resize the pix - chopperman has a thread on this: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=24054

Must have been agonizing working with a knife to cut all those holes?!

There's lazer-cutting services out there that could do the job for you fairly cheaply that could make the cuts perfectly after the original faceplate without the wood splitting up the grain. You got it looking pretty good despite this.. a few knicks add character & charm :)

A thin veneer like that will bend any-which-way with no risk of splitting if you suspend it over a steam bath under a lid for 20 minutes or so is another tip - then you could clamp it over the original faceplate using a hot hair-dryer on the edges when doing the folding... I'm thinking that while it's warm, moist and clamped it might be easier to do the cutting using the metal faceplate as a template/cutting guide too...

Just a couple thoughts... I was working alongside a woodwork teacher last year who was leading a grade 9 class through a similar process making oval/round wooden boxes using the steam-bending process.

How does it play, now that the buttons are slightly more recessed?
