I stated on my profile that I do much of the custom veneer work where I work. I thought I would post some examples.
The first pic is zebra wood with solid walnut nosing. The entire project’s zebra wood was sliced from one log, clipped and book matched by hand and bonded to a trupan core in a vacuum press.

The veneer in the second pic is Tamo. ( A closeup is in the third pic ) I remember that it was so brittle that it was like trying to veneer a potato chip. :)

How do you like the trupan? Is it really worth the premium over regular mdf?

I like it because it is a third of the weight of mdf and is very stable. There is more than one flavor of trupan. I use the ultralight variety.

Nice work! Beautiful contrast in wood. The classy, overstuffed leather couch is a nice touch too.
