Veneering is often the most efficient and beautiful way to show grain and growth patterns. It also conserves limited wood supplies. This solid mahogany mantel has exotic hardwood veneer panels. The fireplace surround is marble. For this design, I interpreted the client's ideas, and showed him a variety of wood samples from which to select.
