Been thinking of some different projects to use some veneer on since I stumbled on about 20,000 square ft and bought it 4 years ago. More than I’ll use in my lifetime. First pic is beech veneer with a walnut and ash case and second pic is birdseye maple with a walnut case. The last pics is what they look like with the lights off. So what do you think. Jeff. { Sorry last two pictures are sideways, cant figure out how to rotate them.}

Good choice of veneer to use, grain stands out. What did you use as backing to the veneer?

I sandwich the veneer between 2 pieces of glass and insert them in a groove in the solid wood to hold them together. lid comes off to access led bulb

cool idea just wondering how well it will hold up even between two pieces of glass.
