Built this sliding barn door for a clients bathroom in California. This was the first time I worked with veneer, I uses some beautiful crotched walnut slabs to cut the 1/8” veneer. For the first time I used a vacuum press which worked great to get even pressure. The core of the door is cabinet grade plywood and the outer rails are 4” wide solid walnut. Unfortunately I never received pictures of the door hanging in the owners home.

I think not enough people remember that veneer is very cool to work with. Nice work.

Have your say...
