I have been soaking up both the wisdom and the opinion on this site for some time now.
Today I was rummaging around in my enclosed trailer for something I needed, and my eyes fell upon the rolled up sheet of paper-backed cherry veneer that has sadly been sitting rolled up in a large log in my non-environmentally-controlled trailer ever since I moved almost a year ago. I’m wondering if it is ruined after such bad treatment, but likely will not climb over 15 feet of junk to get to it for another year while I busy myself with other projects.
During that year, having modified my way of thinking from countless posts here and youtube videos by the hundreds, I find myself not really leaning in the direction of making anything that would have veneer as part of the design.
I got to wondering if the wisdom and opinions here have helped cause that shift? I have noticed that it is very rare to see anything here about veneer.
What is the prevailing opinion here regarding including veneer in one-off custom work (i.e. not production stuff like kitchen cabinets and the like, but rather more artisanal hand-crafted furniture.)
Is it looked down upon? Is it just a small step above making something out of particle board?
