I recently bought a vacuum bag kit so this is my first attempt at veneering. Being a bit crazy I thought I’d try laminating curved pieces at the same time. Thankfully it came out well. The sides are 3 layers of 6mm MDF and the shelves 2 layers, all veneered with cherry. The top and drawer front are solid cherry and the drawer box is dovetailed poplar.
I finished the piece with lacquer, spraying about 6 coats. After rubbing out it came up well.
The handle is a piece of black walnut and I just whittled away with a knife and rasps until this bowtie shape emerged.
I hope you like it,
