Topic tags/keywords: ash traditional veneering humor

Thought I would share what I get to work with today. Nice pieces of quartered burl ash veneer. Going on a couple of fancy kitchen island and island panels with lots of fru fru. (the technical term in our shop for the very classical style involving much adornment and applique)

Good times!!

Joey,
Are you using a large vacuuming process?

Actually no.. I should, but haven’t gotten away from my good ole fashion 200lb old linoleum floor roller. It is sad in a shop as equipped as mine I don’t have one yet. :( I will post pics of the final lay out. IMO it came together quick, and quite nice. In this case I veneered the back of the panels as 4×8 sheets in rift sawn white oak, then cut them over sized so I could “see” a good layout on the veneers. I have now cut them and kept my notes on ref marks and such, and will glue up the expensive veneers as individual panels, and cut to final size tomorrow. Then on to door assembly.

Thanks Joey. Before I got into WW I used to build RC Sailpanes and did a lot of foam cut airfoils veneered with Obechi. I wish I had never sold my vacuum pump. It was a small one, so I used an old Freon tank as a reservoir and it worked great. Now that I am WW-ing, I wish I still had it. That sure would cut the costs on some things.

There are often pumps for sale at auctions, where they get rid of some of the auto repair shops vacuum pumps for working on AC Freon reclaim.

Though even a new one on Ebay for 3 CFM is available for 69.95

The vac bag is great for laminating curved panels for doors and chair seats.

Boy don’t I know it. I even got some friends who would lend me theirs… but it still stays a little low on the priorities list for some reason…. some day.

Oh and BTW here is the lay out. these will be panels in oak shaker doors and panels. It is two islands front back and sides, and a pic of my favorite one. Should come out great.
