That is fantastic! I love the grain pattern.

Do you have any other pictures of it?

Fantastic layout of the veneers. Love the way is continues over the top in a folded/lateral
movement instead of horizontal like so many others.

Very distinct.

WOW! That grain pattern really makes this piece. Very well done.

I am working with some curly cherry and would like to know the steps you took to “pop” the grain out they way you did on this piece. Very nice!!

Very nice. I have to echo what others have said. The grain is what makes this project pop. More pics please!
