Here’s an alternative to the usual plain wood or vinyl/tolex covering: newspaper! Richard borrowed the decoupage technique used in furniture.
“I lacquer the newspaper. But first I paint the wooded boards white. So the wood doesn’t shine thru! Then I use spray glue to fix the paper to the wood. Then I lacquer it clear (dont know why I didn’t do it glossy!). But next time I will use the lacquer, they use to preserve the wooden parquet flooring.”
