This was an experiment in veneering that I did. MDF Substrate is mitered and biscuited. Veneer runs continuously up one side over the top and back down the other side. Used tung oil to bring out the grain and then sprayed lacquer over it. Cube can used as table or impromptu seating.

Sometimes the simplest designs are the best.

It’s a simple design but it sure shows the great graining of the Walnut and what a great veneer “warmup”

This remines me of a TV show where the master tell the student to make a perfect cube. Well as we all know its not easy to make perfect edges as you have done. No trim to cover up bad joints or different color to distract your eye. Just perfect joints and square edges. Nice project, Nicer idea, Great workmenship.

That’s just gorgeous. I like ‘Dusty56’ think Walnut is brilliant, easily my favourite wood. Did you use just one layer of Veneer?, and how did you finish the edges, I tried something very similar but found it very difficult to remove the over hang of veneer on the edge. One more question how did you join the veneer to the wood, Clamped and glued or Bag pressed!?.
Nice work
