These look great. So are these just being made because the time is right and will be saved for that just in case gift?

With your thin slices, that's both a great idea and could lead to trouble for me. I have some thin scraps that i saved because I knew I'd end up using them. Well it's been 4 years now. Have you ever thought about making your own plywood panel? I did that once using pretty thick plys and it turned out great, but i want to try it with thinner material. I don't think that I'd use it very often but it could be useful in an odd place where I wanted to try something different.

Bingo!  I'm sure I'm not the only one that gets asked if we have something for so-and-so's birthday, wedding, or whatever . . .

Me: "When is it?"

Them: "Day after tomorrow."

Me: "Uh . . . "

As to hanging on to scrap fr way too long; yep, guilty.  A couple of times a year I will empty the shorts bin and choose who gets to live and who becomes firewood :lol:.  It can be tough but, scrap space (and usefulness) s finite.  I was thinking I may pre-veneer some thin substrate.  Maybe small decorative panels would be more readily used than just thin scrap(?).

I’ve jury rigged different methods of measuring the inside thickness such as you’re having to measure and I don’t see that Lee Valley carries this any longer.

I bet this will serve well for me. Thanks @gee-dub.

Those calipers work great.  I pull the battery out between projects to preserve battery life.
