This is a Laurel Burled dining room table that I was commissioned to build. the core is solid wood which I ripped to thinner stock and re-glued back to prevent movement..the top is a 8 way bookmatched veneered that I glued down in a vacuum bag. I used what is called a squiggle cut to join my horizontal veneers to my verticle veneers on the side of the table. The client wanted no overhang on the top and no offset on the aprons..the legs have 1/4” felt on the bottom to prevent marring her wooden floor.
I added a picture of myself holding the veneer for the top which was over 8’ long to show how I handled the veneer when I was ready to glue it down..a method taught to me by Paul Schurch..
ever since Lee Jesberger turned me onto veneering..I have not looked back and have taught others the art of veneering too.. so a big thanks to Lee and Paul..
I also enclosed a picture of two pieces of veneer (horizontal to verticle) and a squiggle cut used to join them..
thanks for looking..
