A while back the same church that I made a display for their literature (tracts) display asked if I would make a patio cart similar to the ones at another church. I was shown a picture, visited the church to take dimensions, and the rest is history. (ha) The only problem using walnut veneer plywood is the thickness of the veneers. I bet it’s just a coupla thousanths thick. Thats funny, bond paper is just a coupla thousanths thick, however I think bond paper is thicker! It plays havoc with edge banding and not sanding through. Fortunatly the veneer is backed up with a dark masonite type material so the sand throughs don’t stand out like a sore thumb like the old days. Of course the veneer was about a 40th of an inch then. The portrusions on the side are umbrella holders.
