Visiting the veneer shop
I have shown our beautiful doors in a previous post. They call this "diamond pattern" and our Endurance model will be the first with this particular style.
Pretty incredible to see how they are made. At the factory, there are just a few women that have the patience and skill to select the veneers and make these beautiful creations. She cuts the pieces with a press, then fits them together with tape. When this outer layer is completed, it is bonded to further layers of marine plywood (in that press you see in the back) to create the main element of the door.
Each veneer layer takes an ENTIRE DAY to create.

Congratulations! I am really impressed with Hampton's willingness to work with you in the customization of the Mahalo. Your customization changes and ideas are spot on. I like the changes you made to the crew quarters and the other additions you have made. The Mahalo is a beautiful boat and I hope you have many years of fun travels. Also please keep up the blog even after you get your boat (I think it is on it way here???). Let us know of all your adventures!
