These are drawer fronts that I veneered for a tool cabinet project. Center is sapele veneer and the crossbanding is ribbon cut sapele. Both are paper backed veneers which makes working with them much easier. Applied with spary contact cement. The black strip is some of the sapele veneer dyed with black ink. Beading around the perimeter is mahagony.

Julian,

Wow! Those are beautiful! If you make drawers like that for your tool cabinet, what does your china cabinet look like? ! ?

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful work. What finish did you apply to the sapele?
