Hi Ron, Lindsey here, Matts wife...I am the one who bungled the veneer up. I do all the fine detail things since Matt doesn't have patience for those types of things. He does the heavy lifting so to speak.

That was the look & finish I had planned upon. I thought about going with a thicker cut (was planning on bamboo too, actually) but ended up with a thin pine veneer since we only have one specialty wood store here which is an hour away & none of the big box stores have any selection of thin cuts, I guess I should have gone with my gut and went with a thicker piece but driving that way twice (we went once & they were closed) just wasn't feasible.
