1409 individually cut pieces of veneer and this is what you get. Never again! By the time I got 1/4 the way through I wanted to quit, but by that point I had too much invested in it. Numb and sore fingers.
This is 18” in diameter with these veneers:
with a Mahogany rim around it.
I used MDF for a substrate and base.
It took over a month of cutting. Most of the work was done at the kitchen table where I could keep an eye on my daughter, so that month consisted of some 4-5 hours days. I saw the pattern on the cover of a book and went from there.
It’s not exactly the same but the main pattern is.
I’m glad the I finally finished it but I’ll never make something this involved again. (I hope)
