what kind of tools do you have or have access to ??
what kind of building and woodworking experience do you have ?
what part of the world do you live in ?

the veneer you will probably use is paper thin.
try to think of how you would wrap a piece of roofing felt
over your frame. the more rigid the frame is, the less movement
you will have later on – creating all kinds of unwanted issues.
like when you build a house . . . . the roofing shingles do not have
a lot of strength. but when nailed to the roof, they do their job.
your frame must be extremely solid and sound prior to applying any
kind of finish to it – especially wood veneer.
