I’m constructing a mission for the December difficulty of Woodworker’s Journal proper now. For some motive, some fool thought that veneering would add an fascinating approach to the mission. (That fool can be me …)
I like what you are able to do with veneer, particularly by way of controlling the grain and determine patterns. I’m utilizing white oak on the outside of the mission, and the quartersawn grain and flake are wonderful.
The drawback with veneer, in fact, is that it’s a must to apply it to the substrate. And there are simply no shortcuts to this system…though I attempt to discover one every time I do a mission like this. To be sincere, this time round my tried shortcut ended up with glue all over the place, veneer caught to locations it shouldn’t have been caught and much more work than if I had simply executed it the standard manner.
But concern not…even with this messy journey within the combine I can see that this mission goes to look nice.
