Default Custom veneer

Hi all, brand new to this board. I just did a crazy re finish on my Premier Signia's, hope to show it off here.
I bought this kit off fleabay, and had some down time with the band so, originally I was just going to fill the holes where the bigass mount sits on the kick drum.

What happened next was a scary journey into the unknown.

Found a bargain on some birdseye maple wood veneer

I surfed the net looking for some pioneers who maybe did this before me, found none so I went ahead, no fear, well, lots of fear actual, no brains??? maybe

Instead of carpenters practice of using contact cement, I chose ultimate wood glue by titebond. There is no fixing contact cement.
and wrapping it with custom made hardwood blocks and ratchet straps, they came together
