What materials/species were used in this project/item?
We were lucky enough to obtain some 1/8″ thick mahogany veneer that was originally harvested by the United States Military during WWII for the production of PT Boat hulls. This project also marked our first foray into using steel as a veneer.
Describe, in detail, the project/item’s construction.
This project was all about grain matching cabinets and unique veneer panels. Limited pulls were requested so we utilized push to open hardware and and finger pulls in most cabinets.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
Being able to turn this veneer that was originally intended to be used as a PT Boat hull into a dream kitchen was an honor.
