A couple of weeks ago I started building a Mahogany book case. The case is Mahogany plywood and the face frame and top moldings are African Mahogany. After the carcase glue up I noticed a defect in the top.
This is how I designed it to look:
In trying to come up with a solution I thought I might raise the top moldings 1/4” and apply a veneer panel of resawn African Mahogany the same thickness to the top like this:
The question is should I glue the entire panel the plywood top or would the 1/4” thick wood move enough during seasonal variations to cause issues later?
Oh, The reason I would hide the top is that the case is only 60” high to begin with so would be visible to most folks.
