The crotch mahogany being finished in the spray booth is awesome. Who is your vendor for that quality of flamed veneer? I am assuming it is all 1/32" material, right?

Top quality woodwork, finish and veneer matching shows committment to quality. Do you have a molder? Looks great quality first very impressive.
