Wood Veneer?


I have a project coming up that my client wants to replicate this look where the side wall and soffit, does not have to match cabinetry or it can has wood or veneer on it.

I am talking to my cabinet guy as well about what options I have.

One concern I have is if I use real wood I will lose about 3/4" spacing on the one wall, I could make it work but was considering veneer instead to save space.

My concern with veneer is how do I use it around recessed med cab door(termination) and terminate it at vanity edge and soffit edges.

Real wood would need to be joined( I am assuming cabinet company does not have 21" wide stuff) and come pre finished, maybe painter could match stain and finish(not liking this idea)?

I think I might be able to order fridge panel which is 24" wide x 8' would need to edge them maybe with stain ordered from cabinet company....

Any other options I am not seeing?

Going with 3/4" from cabinet company. Any good ideas on how to cut side panel out for recess med cab door on site? Track saw is the best bet?

Going to sub this one out to trim guy.

Door will be ordered so it will be finished on all sides and stain from cabinet company to finish edges where we cut for med cab opening.
