This is my first veneer project and it was a lot to bite off let me tell you…...lol
I’m really proud of this project, I’m building a corner desk using walnut and old growth southern yellow pine.
The top is Baltic birch plywood veneered with walnut on the bottom and syp on the top with a walnut molding i’m just doing the last coats of finish and really love how it turned out and want to share it, hope you like it.
The veneer was cut on the band saw just under an eighth and drum sanded to about 3/32’’, edge glued then glued to the plywood using clamps and cauls molding was added using biscuits, tight bond 3 was used for everything expect when it came to the pine I used a standard yellow glue.
Finished with 4 coats tung, linseed,poly and now at about 3 coats of just poly not wipe on, going to finish with 2 coats of wipe on poly satin.
