Rj..the hammer veneering is pretty simple, a cross between wallpapering and rolling plastic laminate. It’s just a matter of working from a central point and forcing air and extra glue into space.What’s more important is prepping the glue and maintaining temp and moisture in it. A commercial glue-pot ($100) makes life a lot less stressful.You also should be working in a shop that’s about 75 deg or so. Much cooler than that and the glue sets up way too fast, much hotter and set time is a little too long.Tools are simple, and you can make them yourself. Some brass strips (1/8-1/4 in thick) for larger areas and I use some smaller rounded over pieces of acrylic/polycarbonate/lexan unhandled for inside curves and smaller areas.What’s nice about the technique is you don’t need to build fixtures for curved work, it’s relatively easy to fix mistakes (bubbles etc.) and the veneering is finished in a few minutes(?), glue doesn’t effect the finish (some may argue that point but I haven’t had any issues using a shellac finish) and has the added advantage of filling open grain.

That’s some kind of wonderful project Bill. But, I’m with RJ, a blog with pictures for each step would really be a big help for guys like me that don’t have a vacuum bag or a bunch of equipment. So, put aside your day job and get busy. ;-)
