Hey guys, I am currently re-finishing and re-furbishing my wifes grandfathers 60 year old oak teachers desk and he had a peice of laminate put in the center of the table top that I have since removed. I am thinking about replacing it with some 22 mil paper backed veneer. I have never glued a peice this large before
Also, the desk is oak that has darkened over the years, it almost look like a dark gunstock oak and I was wondering what your thoughts were on the type of wood i should use for the inlay, I was thinking a lighter one and my wife was thinking of darker. I understand it is up to us and our preferences but i would love to hear what you all have to offer so i can kick around some different combinations !!!
Thanks for the help and I will try to get some pictures up here soon !!
