note to Shipwright … used Internet explorer to attach pictures; chrome browser wouldn’t work

light colored warped veneer is birds eye maple; it’s still flexible enough that I can flatten it by hand;
the center dark-red is Amaranth / Indies; it also has some warp but not as much as the maple;
dark lines are ebony, some of which is brittle.

I’ve gotten all veneer pieces off now, scraped & sanded off all the adhesive. Will likely need to rough sand ( # 50 ) to enhance adhesion of glue.

the border (multi-veneer) is still affixed to the substrate. it doesn’t seem to be coming loose … though I’m wondering whether it would be better to remove it … probably also attached using double stick tape.
What are your thoughts?
