I’m going to be resawing some oak to make veneer. The finished strips need to be about 1.5” wide. Common sense tells me I should resaw the 4” wide oak into the veneer, do all my finish work then rip it to the 1.5”? But sometimes my common sense is so common. Is there a better way to do this?

TIA

What exactly do you plan to do with it. How you’re using it could dictate a better or alternate method.

I’m redoing my wife’s kitchen from the ceiling to the floor. There is currently plain flat moulding at the ceiling. It is in great shape but just ugly. There is absolutely no reason functional reason to wreck it out and replace. It also works with the kitchen size so I wold more than likely simply replace with like but a better finish. I’m going to degrease it, rough it up and then install the veneer over it.
