This is a TV cab built with walnut and walnut burl veneer. It took 12 trimmed and book-matched flitches per door. The entire face came from a single burl. The outer trim veneer is ribbon stripe mahogany.
The first pic is in our showroom before delivery, and the next two are in the clients home.

That is a very nice cabinet. The veneer work is impeccable. When I opened this up all I could say to myself was WOW!!!!! I love the grain pattern from the burl.

How did you finish the piece?

That thing is HUGE!

Love the burl.

Not actually trying to be funny, but I swear I can see a Koala bear in the burl swirl.

That is one nice veneer job! Did you use a vacuum press?

>Did you use a vacuum press?<
Yes. We have two. One is a 4 X 8 with a hinged top and torsion box bed – - and the other uses various bags and platens ( the largest is 5 X 12 )
