I decided to veneer my first rangefinder, my Canon Canonet 28 which I featured yesterday with a roll of film, and I took a different turn with it this time. I went with a dark stain this time instead of a clear coat, that highlights the natural colors, and I think it worked really well. I also took a couple photos of it with the other cameras I have veneer and I think you can tell a striking difference in the quality of my work since my first one compared to the Canonet.
I’ve been thinking about starting to sell these on the side or even possibly start a Kickstarter Campaign to get a headstart. Comment if you’ve had any success with Kickstarter or would be interested in getting one.
The dark stain just looks so luxurious.
