Oh yeah! It was the motivation needed to start this project. I sourced the veneers for the door panels from another source that specializes in rare veneers. Locally it's very hard to find anyone with enough of a rare veneer to do an entire project through and through.
I used the same place to source veneers for the back of a bookcase, the guy gets some incredible stuff.
Only the first scratch hurts, after that it's resigned to it's fate of acquiring 'patina'.
