    I used a 20 mil paper backed veneer when I built my tower and center speakers. I'm now wanting to build the rear surrounds to match and I found a place where I can get the same species of veneer for significantly lower price, but it is 10 mil. Is there a problem with using a 10 mil veneer in this application (it will be wrapping around some 1/2 radius corner)? I don't use any stain for this finish, just poly right over veneer for the color I want.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would be concerned mainly with sandability, or lack there of, for something so thin. That, and possible voids in such thin veneer. Otherwise it should wrap more easily.
