I've just picked up my latest addition a Beomaster 2000 but what veneer is it?!

It doesn't look like teak or rosewood but I can't find any reference to an oak veneer version on the product page (or on Beocentral) - the label on the back says E4 SL2.

If anyone can shed some light I'd be grateful! Big Smile

Yes, it is an oak Version of BM2000, rare and very nice.

The E on the sticker is for "Eg" = oak (as P is for palisander or T for teak).

Ahh - thank you all! Smile 

I used to have one in teak and used a touch of Danish oil on it from time to time but what is the best method of maintaining the oak veneer? I love the paler wood colour!

Thanks

Mine too, I have been searching for one on the US bay for about 3 years now, but no such luck, seams like very few was sold in the USA, bringing one from DK will be a struggle, last time I tried to bring something that big, my suitcase disappeared never to be seen again,

Thank you for the nice pics Martin

Here an article about treatment of light oak and here a video about it

Thank you for the advice Søren - I just need to find some of that soap in the UK now!

I've finally got some soap flakes but all the information I can find about the soap finish seems to be in reference to solid wood. I'm nervous about the oak veneer splitting from the frame if I use it on the Beomaster - has anyone tried it before?
