New job

Page 1 of 3  
About a year ago I designed a wide screen/ entertainment/faux fireplace/ mantle. This was for a repeat customer that was having her home remodeled and enlarged. Any way the remodeling is done and I got the go ahead to start the above mentioned piece.
First off the job calls for Georgian cherry stained mahogany. Normally I hate staining as it hdes the character of the drain. Mahogany has overly enthusiastic grain and typically can stand toning down so I am OK with that and that is what the customer wants. :-)
The job calls for two 3/4" sheets of mahogany plywood and the material I got is excellent The panels had little to no voids,the ply's were consistent in thickness, and the outer veneer is thick enough to be viewed from its edge with out an electron microscope. OH! And it is FLAT
Here it is https://flic.kr/p/AYEkVu

I'll post more with more progress

Actually I have an old mahogany side table that I remember from about the age of 2. It needs go be refinished and I'll probably do it in the same color.
Thanks!

:-) It is a flat surface that helps to kerf every thing straight during glue up. And while it is up there you might as well apply varnish.

Thank you.

Mahogany plywood is often intended for marine use, and thus is made to BS1088 or similar specs. Much higher quality stuff than what the mills would otherwise make.
Just for curiousity, who's the vendor? Boulter Plywood in Massachuesets is a good place for quality plywood.

I don't think it is marine, look here for spec.
