The Vintage Project: Klipsch Forte I – Almost Finished
I got the cabinets and stands stripped, and then gently sanded. I then stained them with an American Walnut stain – it was a stain and seal type. Two coats.
You can see where the veneer is gone, on the stands in particular. I knew stripping the black paint would reveal many scars, but I prefer the natural finish to the paint. Some cleanup is needed, but I’m close.
A bit more damage on top, but the veneer looks good overall.
I should have the crossovers tomorrow! Can’t wait to get these things singing.
Be back soon with early listening impressions and eventually a more direct comparison to my Lore. Thanks for listening.
