I made this as trade for a 5 hp powermatic taple saw for my new shop. Solid and veneer sapelle, solid wood fronts and drawer boxes. The ends I used poplar bending ply with 1/16” thick veneer front and back. I enjoyed this project.

The curves are neat! Never worked with sapele or bending plywood before…

Looks great. I really like using that poplar bending ply, works really well for curved panels.

No, I didn’t make the veneer. A friend of mine ordered a sapelle tree veneered to 1/10th sequenced and labeled, I used a couple flinches of his. It matched my solid wood very well. I have an 18” band saw for veneering but free perfect veneer isn’t something I’d turn down.
My ends were dadoed 1/2” into the legs full length of the panel then finished the bottom with a moulding I carried through the visible face and ends. The saw was worth the trade.
