    No I hadn't, I don't know if that would make much difference as the inner Ply is multiple layers, its not something I've come across before. I just went for 12+12mm thicknesses of the MDF/Birch ply. The ply is stiffer, the MDF easier to machine/finish. The combination seems very dead when you give it a wack.

    The veneer arrived today, four eight foot sheets, plus the kilo of hide glue also arrived early. I made a glue pot/warmer from a used babies bottle warmer so I'm almost ready to start.

    The hammer/hide glue is a new process for me so a bit of practice is required, I have some small full range speakers I use for testing purposes, in plain MDF boxes, they will get some veneer now. I intend to route the edges with a round over bit after veneering, R8 or R10 (sizes I already have). This is why I've gone for hide glue, it machines well without clogging the cutter, wont leave a witness line where it is cut at an acute angle, as its almost invisible being clear, plus it accepts wood stain, unlike most other glues. The small test speakers will also allow me to try out some dying techniques for the exposed MDF edges after the rads are cut. I've seen some of the things they do with MDF furniture by feathering in the edges with a dark stain, it blends the exposed MDF with the veneer and gives an aged look at the same time. Bit like these:
