Topic tags/keywords: question maple

Need to find either 1/4” or preferably 1/2” curly or birdseye maple plywood. Wanting to use in panels for a chest and havent played with veneers. Since this is already a sold commission piece I dont want to practice veneering on this one.

I found this, but it is up in the NY and CT area….

Could you edge glue 1/2”... Might be the only option.

I don’t know a source. Time to practice veneering ,start with scarp wood.

Like Jim says, but I’d say do a search on “hammer veneering” especially on yuotube. There are some very good videos…............. and you don’t need a press at all.

Thanks for the suggestions, Hammer method seems reasonable. Have to do some thinking on this while I drive home tomorrow, gotta love 15 hours of windsheld time to solve woodworking problems.
