1) A soft glue roller really works well.All I can say is I am impressed. This seemingly cheap roller spreads glue like paint. Just squirt glue out as normal and roll, up/down and left/right. The result is smooth and consistent throughout. Clean up is with soap and water. 2) A veneer saw is great but needs a tune up. I tried both cutting with a knife and a veneer saw. For now, the saw wins. I guess that’s why they still sell them every place veneer is sold. But mine needed a t...
