On the job, almost all of the finishing work gets subbed out to the painter. I just build things, so this is mostly new to me and there are way too many options…
I have a speaker that’s currently half raw mahogany veneer, and half exposed MDF. Current plan is to paint the MDF and based on lack of experience, just poly over everything after that. The stumbling blocks are what’s going to work together between painting, filling the grain on the mahogany, and finishing.
Criteria are simple, cheap, durable, fast; in that order.
(If applicable, my compressor is at best marginal for spraying, and I’d have to buy a gun, which would eat into the cheap criterion)
