Topic tags/keywords: veneering

I’m about to start on my first veneering project. I’m hoping to get some feedback on the following:

What is the best procedure for gluing up panels? One, cut core to exact size required, apply slightly oversize veneer, after glue-up trim veneer (with router I assume)? Or two, cut core larger than size needed, apply veneer, trim up entire veneered panel on tablesaw? Three, something I’m not thinking of?

I’m thinking one is safer (less likely to chip/tear veneer), but two would allow me to make any final adjustment to grain orientation on trim up, if something shifted during clamping.

Also, is it better to apply the front and back veneers in one glue up operation, or should I do one side and then do the other immediately after the first side sets?

Thanks!

Hi John;

There’s a fair amount of information on veneering on my website.

Rick, yes I’m watching my posts. I PM’d Lee with a couple of clarifying questions after reading his very good articles. I am somewhat surprised that no one else had any comments. Perhaps not too many do veneering on this site.
