Walnut veneered door after pressing. Not sanded or finished yet. I expect the color variation between veneer pieces to disappear with sanding. There’s a second door without a live edge still in the press. I will post again once they are finished and hung. There’s a lightweight door core in the middle with a solid walnut cap. It’s only about 80 pounds.
Credit to Brett Hesser for the idea of veneering over a live edge. His burl bench can be seen in the Mingei Museum.
