Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

Although the new side panels looked OK, after applying French polish I wasn't entirely satisfied with the appearance of the surfaces. On Monday it was decided to use the remainder of those veneer sheets bought last year to improve the look of the sides. Also, as the front panel is covered with those decorative strips the grain pattern of the veneer is almost covered up. At least the new veneers can be seen at the sides. I haven't book matched the veneer because the original panels weren't done in that manner.
