I cut and stuck a sheet of cherry veneer onto the lid of my 2018 Macbook Pro last night, and am quite impressed. The thin sheet conforms to the bevels really well! I have the benefits of a “custom” laptop without damaging the resale value.
But now I’m thinking maybe I want to engrave the Apple logo, or some other design, into the lid. Any thoughts about the heat doing strange things to the 3M adhesive, maybe melting it into the aluminum’s finish? Something else equally icky? I’d like to retain the ability to remove the veneer someday, and not find a shocking surprise.
