Another version of my compound veneering. Really enjoying this new series. Too many ideas to complete.
Some killer Koa helps. Guess COVID has a silver lining ,keeps me in the shop. I’ll be teaching compound veneering in my online live demos. sign up at ImagineWoodworking. Here is a quick video of how I made the last one. https://www.facebook.com/scott.grove.587/videos/10158559495118777
Enjoy!

Sam was a great guy. I got a wonderful story with him. We were presenting at a Furniture Society show in Phoenix. He had one of his double presidents chairs on display at a local museum. We were all standing around it and Sam explain that he uses drywall screw the fasten the back, at this point some of the “fine” woodworkers in the group had a cow.
Sam ask me to take the piece off its pedestal and we both sat on rockin back and its back legs. “see – strong as ever”
We put the chair back, Sam wondered off, as a crowd was still gathering to see what was going on. I was then explaining to every one what just happen, then touched the chair and a SWAT team repelled from the ceiling to drag me away. not really but a firm DONT TOUCH was directed at me. As I was thinking, did you just see me a Sam sitting in this chair. Great Guy.

i only met him in person once at the woodworks show near his house,seemed like a great guy,very humble.ive been to his house a couple times and did an all day tour and woodworking presentation with one of the “boys” larry white who is probably as talented as sam himself.

Wow, very attractive piece….....both in color and design.
I watched the video. Heck, I want to know how you cut out and shaped the piece let alone the lamination process.
Well done.

That is an exceptional piece/pieces of wood. Pretty much whatever you did with it would be grand, but that shape really works well, nice job.
