I have purchased some veneer from Woodcraft. I would like to know is there a way to store it so it will not warp? It sems that with the summer heat and all, it could start to take on some strange shapes. Thanks

Don’t worry with warping…. I always wet the veneer and press it overnight before using it. Pressing the layers have following orders… granite (glass will do or plywood) old newspaper, veneer, old newpaper, veneer, ...... then on top is the heavier granite or glass. The old newspaper serves as an absorbent.
