    I am debating going with truck bed liner for my sub finish... but some of the veneers are soooooooooo nice. If my decor changes, may I simply laminate over it?

    Thanks.

    No. The truck bed liner is a fairly high textured finish. If you are willing to completly sand the finish to the bare mdf, you can probably finish over it. I have used the truck bed liner. It looks good. Howwer, now, I am wanting a more sophisticated finish. I think that it would now be easier to rebuild these cabinets than to refinish them. OTOH, that may give you some idea as to the durability of the truck bed liner finish

    Thanks Greg.. based upon that I am going to stay with laminate (I am thinking burled maple stained black... but that could change ;-).

    I cannot take credit at all for those cabinets, that's not my work. I WISH it was. [​IMG] They were built by a local HTF member, Darren Thomas. More pictures are on his site here: http://www.thomaswoodcraft.com

    Darren is a true craftsman, and a perfectionist to say the least!

    Take care,

    Ronnie
