Hey everyone, so I started cutting the veneer into shorter strips and I'm curious if anyone has any tips for something.

The veneer I have is a little wider at one end than it is at the other, ie: it's like 10.75 inches wide on one side and 10.25 wide on the other end.

I'm planning on making them ~10.00 inch wide pieces but I was curious if anyone had any ideas on how to keep the veneer straight so the veneer lines up when matching it?

I was planning to try laying the veneer sheets side by side with a slight bit of overlap and cutting down from there.

I've done a lot of reading but I'm just curious if anyone has any tips from experience?

Just seeing if anyone has any ideas?

I'm gonna try some testing tonight and see how that goes as I do have a couple extra pieces.

This sub looks excellent, lots of work and love went into it. But what happens when you need 3 more?

I prefer to not think about that haha.

I'm also building this in the middle of my apartment so if I needed 3 more down the road hopefully I have a better space available to make it
