The first thing that comes to mind is WOW! Next is how? Is the sub straight a turning, sculpting or bent lamination? Errr….Uhhh….if you don’t mind me asking. Seems to me that veneering a dome shape as such the veneer would tend to buckle and would require a pie shaped relief cut. Well however you did it it’s pretty cool. I recently built a vacuum press and am exploring the art of veneering.

perhaps it is an illusion but the medalion is flat. first i made a circle, then cut up a bunch of baltic birch ply about 2 in wide and mitered the corners. i staggered the joints to make it stronger. then applied the edging with white glue to geve me more time. that piece of veneer is probally one of my favorites. thanks again for everones comments i appreciate them. wish i had more time to spend on the computer but with wife 3 children and a full time job and a busy hobby not much time left over

I’m not sure why but my heart starts pounding when I see wood like this. Your work is great. I am wondering if the veneer was easy to bend and fasten to your sub straight or is that flat?

I rolled the dice and this came up. I love it. I love the idea. Never thought of using wood as a medallion.
