    Do you have any better pics of the faux wood there now?
    Play with it, 'til it's broke.

    Man I don't feel so bad about my ghetto tablet now.



    J\K Looks good so far. I considered doing the same, but the veneer I found wasn't very flexible. You'll probably have to wrap all the curved edges in leather and stamp the Zebrano veneers into the flat surfaces.

    Hey Luxurylows,

    Here's where I got my veneer:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/9273-Zebrano-ven...QQcmdZViewItem

    You can see what I did with it here:

    It will bend, but probably not around those 90 degree corners. You may want to attach the sides, then the front. Matching the grain pattern is going to be the hard part.

    As suggested, have you considered covering it in the same tan leather as the rest of the interior? Would probably look nice, maybe add a few wood hilites or maybe just a wood face all the way down and leather sides? That would looks nice IMHO.

    Good luck!
