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
The stained panels.
The front face frame going together.
Bringing it altogether
I'll post more with more progress
