Got one ready for delivery. The crown shipped loose. The center panels are Yew veneer. I don’t much care for it, but the decorators love it. They will finish at the job site. I also added some more pictures to the earlier Curved Panels posts.

The center panels had to be vacuum pressed in pairs and then glued together-

Very cool! Cutting that many kerfs can get very boring!

How did you make the cruved trim?

>Cutting that many kerfs can get very boring!<

The curved panels are made from two layers of 1/4” pre-kerfed mdf panels. I first vacuum press the veneer on one layer laid out flat, then sand the veneer. The second layer is then glued to the first on a curved jig. ( again in the vacuum press )

Because of size restrictions, both with the pre-kerfed panels and the vacuum press, Each panel had to consist of two parts. I show how I glued them together on the same curved jig that I used in the press.

The panels could only be a total of 1/2” thick because of ductwork at the job-site.

>How did you make the curved trim?<

I will try to post some pics.

Thanks for all of the nice comments :)

I tend to agree with you about the yew but would reserve judgment until I see the finished product. To me it simply doesn’t go well with the panel frame.

Thanks for the post.
