Chrome Plating Wood?

chrome paint   Gold Touch   J G Nikolas   M and M Metallizing


Does anyone know if there is a process for a durable chrome plating on a wood surface? If so, could you direct me to a company that can perform this on a very small run?

I don't think actual nickel-chrome plating of wood will prove practical, Rich. However, "chrome-look paint" has gotten much better over the past few years and I believe that few people would be able to tell chrome-look paint from real chrome plating in this application. The banner ad at the top of the page links not only to suppliers of the paint but to a couple of shops which specialize in its application. Good luck.
