I’ve searched around but haven’t had luck finding an answer to my question so I’ll pose it here:
I’m getting started on a small round (20”) side table that will have a curved apron and drawer. I’m going to try my hand at bent lamination using 1/32” veneer. I got some beautiful walnut from my local supplier and it’s on average about 10” wide, not trimmed to width “live edge” veneer cuts. It seems to me that it would make sense to trim one edge to get a straight line and then cut it a bit wider than I need for final dimensions and finishing after glue-up…but never having done this before, that’s where you come in. Does my plan sound reasonable, or should I try a different approach? And, if I trim first, what are your recommendations for making the cuts?
