Thought I’d send you pictures of a hall cabinet I made a while back.
The frame is Honduras Mahogany and the veneer is Olive Ash. One of those “Honey I can make it better and cheaper than anything you can buy in the market”. I never committed on how fast. I don’t have a vac bag so all the veneering was done using cauls and MDF sheets, It went surprisingly well. I had my anxious moments as I didn’t have too much veneer if the first batch got messed up, but it turned out ok. Three years down the road and it is still sticking.
Can you see the grinch in the veneer?
