I have two pieces of Tasmanian Blackwood veneer available to use on the Curved front Box
The problem is guess I do not know how to go about it,
I don’t want to waste the veneer by cutting it up incorrectly but in the same I don’t fully understand how to select a suitable piece.
Does it start from the front wrap around the left and right sides and meet at the back as a join?
Next what determines the aspect for the top of the Lid?
You obviously don’t “just slap it on!” without some consideration to grain flow.
I can only assume it commences at the most attractive face and flows away?
Meaning you would select a balanced front image and then have it disappearing or vanishing to the back.
I mulled over whether or not you use both pieces, but again it all became too hard and I decided to have a beer and think about it.
Wishing I would hopefully get an inspiration so I had a beer but no inspiration appeared, I did however feel a bit more relaxed.
But still no magical answer.
To hell with it I thought and will wait for another day, then I had a sudden thought maybe, just maybe there is a LJ with the answer to it or a possible solution that they may like to provide me with?
Meanwhile I thought that I would commence flattening the veneer ready for use, but even that is on hold due to not knowing which sections to use
I don’t often get stuck but it looks like history has been made and I need to ask for help.
Facts: The veneer I have available is Tasmanian Blackwood, its in 2 x sheets/strips 2.4m x 200mm x (I assume 0.6mm) so there is plenty of it but there are the typical splits extending up to 200mm from each end.
