I think your on to something with the whole re-facing thing. Not many companies do that in this area and it takes a somewhat special skill set to make the cuts right and finish things off proper without bubbling of the veneer etc.
I used PSA veneer for the larger areas, its much easier and cleaner to install. Used heat activated veneer edging for the fronts of the boxes.
It took 1 4x8 sheet of cherry veneer to do the fronts/backs of the doors and the cabinet. Cut my labor cost down as I didnt have to sand very much but it did increase my material cost.
I bought a cheaper siphon gun this past winter I ran off my compressor to see if its something I would invest in. Set up times were longer and the mixing ratio stuff was a pain. Shot this with my graco 395pc with a FF 310, I bought a 25ft hose for this machine which made a huge difference in making it easier to work in tight spaces. and it took less than 1/4 gallon to prime.
