GT6 Dash panel


Recommended Posts

Are you looking for a new panel or getting yours refurbed? 

I've done a lot of veneering, marquetry, French polishing etc (not commercially) and wondered what sort of price people pay for this type of thing and if there's any demand. 

I'd be interested to know if you can find a company that suits you, if not then maybe I should think about starting a little pocket money business. 

Www.thewoodveneerhub.co.uk is a good place to look for materials or inspiration. I've used them many times. 

FYI this is eucalyptus and holly veneered onto a turned cylinder, not easy and the holly was from one piece which was really hard to find, when did you last see a holly tree being felled with a big trunk? It couldn't be sanded because the black eucalyptus bleeds into the white holly, and scraping it was difficult because of the random grain. A dash would be much more straightforward and the finish would be like glass. Not the best photo ever as I just snapped it now.
