Thanks so much for all of this infomation!! I am thinking that it is how you are saying….. the wood core was dry having been purchased at a “big-box” store as a glued plank. It had actually been stored in my shop for about 6 months, and so I think it was well aclimated. It must have been the moisture in the water-based glue and the veneer only on one side.

So I should glue a equal veneer perpendicular to the core grain on the back using a plastic resin glue, right?

(The original glue was yellow glue. The board was placed in the house after glued, and it “cupped” overnight.)

A few quick questions if possible….

1- Should I stop using yellow glue for larger veneer panels do you think?

2- Did I read this correctly for future applications…... If using a solid wood core, glue a veneer on front and back both perpendicular grain to the core. And then glue my final veneer panel on the now stabalized core?

I would think so. I have glued things very similar in size (20×20 inches) to plywood in the past without issue. And I have heard that you can use MDF board as well. Can’t speak for that, but I know that I’ve always used plywood before. I guess I was sort of thinking that I would try something “nicer” than plywood. LOL. Serves me right, eh.
