Just wonderd what you compulsive cab builders use to cover the cabs. These various coverings made for the purpose tend to be really expensive. A neat joinery job with slabs of Mahogany - or whatever - is one thing. But if you're using MDF, chipboard, or whatever, what do you do? A nice, if not messy trick I tried once was to paint diluted PVA glue over the bare board, then throw loads of sawdust over it. Another coat of glue, let it dry then matt black paint finishes the job. Sounds a bit crude, I agree, but it looks quite nice. I knew a guy who covered the bare wood in PVA then 'wallpapered' it with woodchip wallpaper, then black vinyl silk. John.
