This is not a step by step blog but just a bunch of picture for my buffet build.
I did not systematically take pictures to have a complete blog write up.

The Carcase

Veneering

Thanks Bruce. I love the veneer too.

Thanks KDC. The leg was from the original design. Jim has some very nice designs. He really thinks outside the box. He taught me a ton.

Jeff: the vacuum pump, the fitting kit,gauges etc… and the 10 ft bag with the breathing mesh cost almost $800. If you have a good compressor you could use the venturi system and save the pump. There were cheaper pump too but I wanted to buy only once. hopefully it will last. I also over bought on the bag. 10 ft is way too much. I plan to cut it in two bags

Thanks Paul!

First of all, you get an A+ on your hammer veneering exam. A lot of perseverance and dedication is required to learn something like that “over the net”. I’m proud of you.
Second, this is a beautiful piece top to bottom. Not an easy build by any stretch but just a sweet result. I hope your wife is over the moon about it. She should be.
BTW, you could avoid the little glue problem you had by using liquid hide glue on the big vacuum bag glue-up. OBG would be my choice.

Congrats on a fine piece of furniture Abbas!
