Veneer advice

Hi all. Im at the centering stage of a Gsg Marty cube. The surfaces are quite flat but there is about an 1/8” channel in each surface about 3/4” in from the edge. My question is, will I have to fill all of that or is the 3/4” enough to hold everything together and not show. I will be using contact glue and a roller to press it down. Thoughts?

If you don't intend to remove the outer baffle then just fill the grooves with wood filler and sand down to flat. If you do want to leave removing it an option, I would laminate/veneer the outer baffle separately and use black spray paint on the front groove.


ETA: And maybe add a groove around the entire front baffle for a more uniform look.

Thanks! Case of too much time going by since starting this project! I’ll probably end up filling the groove.
