You will need to flatten this veneer before you work with it (cutting, seaming and using it in a vacuum press). It is much to brittle and rippled to work with in the state you receive it in.
Water alone will not work, it will have a small and short-lived effect on a veneer's flexibility. It will not condition the wood cells which is critical to getting the veneer flat without splitting. Additionally, if the water dries too fast, the veneer sheet can crack severely.
Use a quality veneer softener that temporarily plasticizes the wood cells, flattens and makes the veneer flexible.
Keep in mind that Mahogany Crotch and Maple Burl are tedious to flatten.
This veneer is probably not a good choice for beginners.
