I cut all the curves and handle holes on the CNC.

Makeshift veneer press - hastily assembled when I discovered I lost a key piece to my vacuum press AFTER I'd already applied glue.

Prefer to use veneer on MDF for captive panels in miter frames so I don't need to account for wood expansion.

Finished.  The inlay is a simple V-carve inlay done on a CNC.

Looks great! I like the use of MDF like you mentioned above. Did you cut this veneer or buy it? Thanks for sharing
