    Default Paint (or veneer) job help

    Hi all.

    I have a plinth for my Thorens and would like to know if anyone here (or could recommend someone) who could respray it in piano (high gloss) black?

    ...Or, to maybe veneer it and lacquer it to a piano gloss finish?

    Many thanks

    Just be aware that a "piano black" finish is not an easy finish to do and could be eye-wateringly expensive.

    Depends but a respray and lacquer would probably be a lot easier and cheaper. PB is really difficult outwith experts with the right equ

    How about a vinyl wrap, like on a car ??
    Try a signage place - it would be a heck of a lot cheaper and wouldn't take very long.

    So how complicated is this Plinth? Could you just make a new one from a quality block of wood?
