I could kick myself in the ass today I finally decided to cover my sono in some birch veneer today & I wish I would have thought it out a little longer. I made the big mistake of trying to use water based contact cement, as the instructions for the veneer said to use such. Every thing seamed to be fine at first but after letting the glue set to dry it began to lift the first layer off the sono tube. Nothing major but it was enough to screw things up some as it caused little ripples in patches of the tube. So to keep the rest of it from doing the same thing I kicked the heat up hoping to dry it out faster, but than noticed it was also screwing up the veneer At this point i was pretty pissed & had to throw some things around to vent a little, Damn glue, Damn veneer, Damn stupid me for not thinking ugh why do this always seam to happen Anyway I thought what the hell I'll throw some regular contact cement over the top of it & go from there. Everything seamed fine again the sono did not lift any farther & this stuff at least has some stick to it. But soon to just add to my anger after laying most of the veneer down & having it looking good the first layer of paper of the tube lifted off. This was it now I was just ready to, well cuss scream kick stuff around like an idiot be ever so pissed at myself for buying that damn water based crap when I knew I shouldn't have. So now I was finding myself peeling the first layer off my sono & trying to make the best of the damage & still salvage the tube. I think I will be OK as at least its not the whole tube but maybe about 1/3 of it that is damaged. I used a good smooth coat of glaze coat (body filler) to help smooth down the rougher spots & have stopped there for now, & I'm gonna wait a day or two to try this again. Well I think I'll quit with my ranting & finish my Beer I just needed to get it off my chest.
