We got an original wood set from a customer who had seen our products at the British Invasion car show in Stowe . From there, we generated the patterns that this set has been reproduced from. This entire set was veneered from the same lot of veneer flitches, so the color/grain is consistent through out the set. The center, left and right sections, and glove box door have been veneered on Baltic/Russian birch plywood like the originals. The other "veneer on solid wood" pieces have been veneered on mahogany, known to be the premium and most stable of all the woods available, also like the originals. The center dash section is veneered from 2 book-matched flitches meeting at the center line, and the veneer has been formed into the gauge openings, as well as flowing without a break around the corners. The left and right sections are also book matched to each other, with the glove box door face being cut from another flitch, so the grain flows from one to the other. The map drawer is also cut out of the center section, so the grain pattern is consistent, and comes with the green felt lining as shown. The glove box door back is also veneered in walnut burl. The door caps are solid mahogany, and the door fillets have the walnut burl flowing around the angles in 2 book matched pieces. For the window trim pieces, we have book matched them to each other. We have installed the hinges, both knobs, the ashtray, and the button catch (on the glove box door).
