I have a few boards of tiger maple and would like it to use it as veneer. I plan on building a chest of drawer in maple. I want to use solid wood for my veneer substrate for the top and drawer front. I am planning on cutting my veneer 1/8 thick to make it easier to work with.
Here is a few question marks:
If I use maple veneer over maple core, do I need to veneer both side to prevent cupping?
If I use maple veneer over pine core or other wood, do I need to veneer both side to prevent cupping?
If I use a different wood for the core, do I need to consider the difference in wood movement?
I need to orient the veneer grain with the core grain, right?
My veneers will be from 4 to 8 inch wide. In the building of the top and drawer front, I plan on veneering each veneer board to a equal width core. Afterwards I will do the lamination. Does this sounds like a good plan?
