Hello everyone, One of my winter "projects" is re-veneering a Zebrano wood shifter surround panel. The one in my 400E in perfect, but it is burl. So this project is strictly a learning experience. I'm a pretty good woodworker so I obtained a "refinished" shifter surround that was so aggressively striped that some of the veneer was removed. I obtained some Zebrano veneer for $10.00 which would be enough to do at least two sets of console panels. I have removed the bad sections of veneer and am now researching the best adheasives to use for this application. This is important because of the temperature variation that these pieces see compared to fine furniture. I am documenting the process with photos so as soon as I have a completed project to show I will post pictures and instructions. I have been able to repair furniture veneer without any seams showing and so far the interior wood for the MB is responding to the same techniques. I will keep everyone posted on progress. Thanks,Tony V.
