Making walnut panels for the new jewelry armoire

edging the plywood

1/16″ walnut veneer

inside and outside sheets ready for gluing on

out of the press

trimmed to size and paper removed

I’ve got the second of two side panels for a jewelry armoire out of the vacuum press. I rarely make plain panels from veneer, but this armoire is very sleek. The case rests of a base with no transition. I can’t hide the spaces I’d need to accommodate the wood movement from a solid wood case. Therefore I’ve edged birch plywood panels with walnut, and then applied 1/16” walnut veneer to both sides. Sweet!
