These are kitchen cabinet door installed and in process. This is a beautiful combination of sap wood, heart wood, quilted and burl wood all in one piece of Oregon’s Big Leaf Maple. Unfortunately Kitchens are sometimes situated so that it is hard to take pictures. These were long sheet of veneer so the pattern continued from the bottom door, drawer to the top matching doors. This long veneer is best applied to new design kitchens where top doors and bottom doors are in alignment. See Myrtle Wood kitchen doors. These were purchased on E-Bay and press onto Aspen 3/4 plywood with my small press. I prefer Tide Bond 2 because of stand out time and roll it one with a six inch roller, both sides. Any of the milk glues of good quality will work. Avoid Larch or fir for 1/42 veneers as the hard winter growth will sand through on finished sanding. The door were then edged by clamping with thin strips of matching lumber. I like this over a veneer edge. I have a lot of fun with my children who help with these projects for their homes. I must mention my good wife. She has been my friend for 3/4 of a century and put up with my sawdust for 65 years and the main inspiration for my wood working early on. Again I hope this is a learning thing for those who are interested and if there are question please ask.
