AR Refinish


OK OK I know an old AR manual table is not very high end. It was my deceased dads so I hate to trash it. It has a Grace arm and new Grado cartrige. Sides are walnut, top is dull black. Everything is black in my system so what the heck I am thinking about refinishing the walnut in shiney piano black finish. How would you go about finishing it

Here is an option. Take your wood TT base to an auto body shop and get a price to have it painted gloss black w/ a clear coat finish. I just got a price to have a small body shop repaint a pair of very large vintage Polk speaker cabinets for $60-$80. Yours should be about $20, and they will do it with commonly available black auto paint and clear coat after hours for extra money.
great suggestion-I will check out
That, or perhaps if you have a Guitar Luthier in your area?
The myriad of finishes could be as simple, or as complex as your wildest dreams. Candy's, Tints, Sunbursts, etc.
Luthiers usually have good experience working-finishing woods. Mark
