I want to make a cabinet door panel with 1/4 ” mahogany over Baltic Birch Plywood. The panel is 24×36 and will sit in a rabbet, not a groove. Would glueing the mahogany to the ply (think veneer) be acceptable. I’m worried about seasonal movement and bowing. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I built a shop sawed 1/4” veneer three way booked match cherry headboard four years ago using the technique you described. I just went in to take a really close look. No problems I could see

Thanks, Ken
What glue did you use? I usually use Titebond 2 and can’t see why it wouldn’t work here also.

I don’t have the container any longer, so I’m not sure. It most certainly was a plastic resin. I don’t know if it matters but I also used a vacuumed bag to clamp it

Mark,
I have a small amount of mahogany with very nice grain, I think it will look nice on this wall hanging tool cabinet I’m building. I’m backing it with 1/2” plywood to make it go farther and give the door some thickness so I can hang tools inside the door.

Thanks again, Ken, I’ll keep researching.
