Built in Custom Mahogany Office Counter

On occasion, I am asked to build custom counters. The counter I am currently working on is for a reception area of an office. the counter is made from MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) faced with a Mahogany veneer. The Counter will replace two existing counters and connect to two sliding windows which separate the office from the waiting room.

Below are some photos detailing the construction of this counter. I will post a photo of the counter once it has been installed.
In this first photo the counter (upside down) is being laminated to a second piece of MDF that will make the overall thickness 1.5 inches.
A photo of the counter (right side up) cut to shape.
In this photo a half round or bull nose molding is being applied to the edges of the counter to give the counter a look of solid Mahogany and also to round any sharp edges.
A photo of the counter with the molding applied and ready for staining.
