I am in the procsess of designing of a mirror frame to hang on the wall and I could use some advice. The frame is basically a square box with a round mirror inset about 3.5”deep in the middle. Dimensions are 40” square, 4” deep with a 31” diameter round mirror in the middle. The box will be made from 1/2” plywood, though I may decide to use 1/4” PW, lauan or hardboard for the front to reduce the weight a tad, and I intend to put walnut veneer strips on the visible surfaces that I will buy that are about 6” wide. The veneer will be placed so that the grain sort of forms a 6 sided pinwheel pattern so there will be no right angles in on the surface. I am still deciding what to do with grain pattern on the sides. The veneer has no adhesive backing and is very thin.
So I am weighing the options for how to glue down the veneer to the surface. Here are some options, thoughts and questions:1. Contact Cement
What would you do and why?
Thanks for your help.
