I tried veneer once on a small door that had veneer on both sides of the oak ply substrate and learned that you MUST add/ glue a piece of similar veneer 90 degrees to the top piece on the back side to prevent splitting. I left it as is to remind me of what not to do. I then tried adding poly in the splits to highlight the mistake to make it look like a tree split pattern. The pattern was book matched on each side of the door. I never posted it because I see only the best of your work posted. I’m learning too.

how did you get those grains to pop like that? what kind of finish is that?
