Week 6 – Rear Panels

Making the rear panels for the cabinet is not much different than making the door panels.  I am a little bit wiser now, that is about the only difference.  This time around I made some extra long cauls that I hoped would put additional pressure on the edges of the rear panels to make sure that the veneers were pressed firmly against the substrates.  These seemed to work out well and by the end of the week I had two rear panels to match my two doors.  Pictures are worth a thousand words.
