Question about wood

If i were to make a custom trunk setup... is it possible to paint wood so it is glossy and nice looking... or would it just be better to wrap it in fabric

depends on the wood you use, standard MDF if you are good at painting can turn out smooth as a babys ass, just throw on primer/filler, the thick stuff, like 3 coats, sand it with 600/800, 4-5 coats of paint, 3 coats of clear, and that bitch will be shiny as hell
