The Vintage Project – Klipsch Forte I: So, I went bananas…
And, inspired by a forum post, I stripped the paint from my Forte to reveal the veneer underneath.
I grabbed some CitriStrip from Home Depot, along with a paint roller and scraper. I knew there would be flaws in the veneer, but I much prefer the bare wood look to the black finish. I’m happy with the change, flaws and all.
I’ve the bulk of the cabinets stripped, but need to do some cleanup tomorrow. And, I’ll need to strip the stands too. These photos are pre-cleanup, so they look a bit better now. I’ll do more finishing this weekend. What I’d like to do is put a clear varnish on them.
So, while I wait for the crossovers, I can get these cabinets finished.
