Wood Grain Control Panel

I'd like to put something like this on my side control panel. I have a mirrored-type plastic there now, and it scratches easily and stays dusty. Any suggestions on where I can find this? This one happened to be in a friend's Prevost...I really like the finish.

Manny, The wood grain panel would look great. Not sure where to fine it. Are you handy with a saw and sander? It's not that hard to make one. Also corian is easy to work with and makes a pretty dash.

Good luck Wayne

Manny,
Google wood verneers & you'll get more leads than you can stand. American Woodcraft stores has some in the catalog too. Usually it is as thin as poster board used for school projects.
