The photograph on the left shows the condition of an original panel from a custom built 1962 Chrysler hearse as it arrived at Hander Woodworking. The client was restoring the vehicle and required four new panels to be made. The new panels were built using a cabinet grade, quarter inch thick maple plywood. Plain sliced walnut veneer was laminated on the outside boarder and a crotch grain walnut veneer was laid up in a starburst pattern on the inside half circle. The finished shape and dark ornamental lines on each panel were programmed and cut with a CNC router so each panel was identical. The pieces were finished with a varnish and then sanded and buffed to a glassy smooth, high sheen, show room finish.
