Default Slow but sure progress

The bases were designed and cut freehand with a jig saw then touched up with a belt sander. Finally routed with a 3/8 roundover. They are attached with T nuts so I can access the Xovers later.

Prepping for veneer lay up. Iron on method.
I spoke with a rep. from Titebond and asked about veneering with Type 3 instead of type 2. He said there would be no problem with the glue in that application style, (heat activated)

Sneaking up on trimming the veneer after application. Follow the grain direction and it all goes well. Unfortunatly cherry grain runs both directions........Uh. OK then, go both directions SLOWLY.
All worked perfectly.

Getting closer to what we want.
Sanding with 220 after trimming within 1/8", sanding in one direction only from new to old veneer.

This is what I was looking for underneath those pesky overhanging veneer edges. Hooray!
This seam is so smooth I truly cannot see where one ends and the other begins. Very happy with how it turned out.

Gluing on the tops, any added weight helps. they will be trimmed with a flush bit on the router later. I wanted to protect the top edge of the veneer, it may be a while before I get around to staining and finishing the cherry veneer. I order Target waterborne ultma finish over 2 weeks ago from Homestead Finishing and still a no show. I'll call and find out whats up in the morning. It will probably show up via UPS or FedEx tomorrow.......go figure.
