Ok, so I posted a project a little while back where I was experimenting with thin wood bookmarks made by doing a small marquetry piece and then applying it to another piece of veneer as a substrate. Unfortunately so far the experiment has not been a total success. I’m happy with the strength and durability of them, and my wife has been very happy with her’s, with one caveat: it twisted.
I did one test that had 3 layers, with the core going across the others, and this one stayed very flat.
I realize that I’m not going to eliminate the wood movement but I would like to minimize or control it.
I’m wondering if this is a project that I’m just going to have to give up on, or if anyone might have any suggestions on other solutions I might try to either minimize the twist or at least even it throughout the finished piece? I am using mostly either very straight grained veneer or some highly figured ones.
