Yep. The veneer is the easy part. Finishing it to meet the quality of the wood is the real bear. This picture does not help but I tried to piano finish the black to contrast the satin finish ribbon mahogany. Looks ok live, and has actually aged better.

Oh, that's nice. Drop some real craftsmanship right when I post a pic of my experiment. I'll meet you behind the gym after school!

I wish I felt comfortable cussing on the boards, because what I want to say is "Holy #*$(#&, dude!" That's a piece of fine furniture. I'm sure she'll say it was worth the wait. Wow. \:o

Michael, et al: This caveat is only for those of you who might receive psych services, but aren't getting good psychotropic drugs ;-) Be careful about this woodworking thing. I was on and off for almost a decade. Then, I went so bananas with doing it after I got downsized from my last position and had a year off, that I had to turn pro to justify (and deduct) my spending habits. So, now I'm self-emp, a crapload poorer, but far more content.

Michael d; Awesome job, great design! And from the looks of the background, if you aren't pro, you've got the space and already flushed a ton o' cash on clamps alone. Are you hiding stuff from view, like an 18" flatbed planer and a whole Festool Collection in the corner? You go!

Very, very nice, Michael.

BTW, getting back to some of the veneer questions and applications, there are veneer "softeners" available, both professional and homemade style. That might be helpfull when applying over curves or for easily damaged veneers like burls.

Most of this woodworking stuff is all Greek to me, but those two angled devices Michael has hanging on the wall is something I can relate to.

Adrian, Rick: Since you both have been around this site for some time, could you answer a question? In the three days I've been at this site instead of doing what I should be, I have been a Newbie, a Frequent Flier, and now a Hobbyist. Not that I have aspirations, but how does one become a "corner sewer?"
