Wood – African Mahogany with Sapele Veneer Panels and drawer fronts.
Veneer Substrate and drawer boxes are made with 1/2” Baltic Birch plywood except on the drawer fronts where I used wiggle wood (flexible plywood) shaped to a curved substrate and then veneer applied using the vaccuum setup shown in the photos. Props to Joe Woodworker (Veneersupplies.com) for the vaccuum parts kit and very nice veneer products.
For those interested the vaccuum parts kit cost about $100 plus another $20ish for additional parts required. This cost does not include the vinyl bags or veneer toos (saw, glue, roller, etc) It performs every bit as good as the commercial vaccuum systems and costs 1/4 to 1/3 of the price.
