WHO KNOWS - How JBL finished their walnut speaker cabinets that were labeled WXA for oiled walnut. Did they merely throw some oil over the bare veneer and rub it out or did they stain it first or did they use a tinted wash for color matching, or what??
I thought someone out there might know the answer or might know who to contact at JBL to get an answer. There are many techniques used by DIY'ers but how did JBL do it.
There's little that can be done to duplicate 30 years of patina but an answer might allow us to better duplicate their efforts when we refinish these old cabinets.
