This started out as a tissue box cover but my wife decided she wanted a bank. Body is 1/4” BB plywood covered with Pomelle Sapele veneer; top is 1/4” BB Plywood with Quilted Big Leaf Maple veneer. Bottom panel is screwed in on four edges to allow access. Miter keys are maple.
Hope to get a picture that shows the Quilted Maple figure better later on.
Fun project – first time I had veneered the entire project. I’ve done veneered tops before but it sure takes more time to do the entire body, too!
