..it sometimes turns into an unsightly mess. It's difficult to match up
your grain and figure when dealing with solid curly material. It will
highlight where your joints are, reflect light differently when the boards
are flipped etc etc.
Buying curly veneer sheets in sequence (from the same tree, in the order
they were cut) makes life easier. Buying the widest, thickest curly maple
material your shop equipment will handle, and resawing, and book matching
will work nice. There is a premium attatched to these 2 methods, that
should be passed on.
If you're using, off the shelf, unmatched curly maple, meet your client at
your supplier, and show them what to expect. Or run the chance of not
getting your final progress payment for the project.
Cheers and good luck!!
