Okay so I am starting a picture frame pproject. It will be made of Tiger maple veneer and trimmed with walnut. Now this will be quite large of a frame. 20×24 or something close to that. Now my question is with the veneer….I was thinking about using poplar as the substrate and only veneer one side. Seems like every video I see seems to veneer both sides…is this need? Also will poplar work okay or should I use something else? Thank you in advance

Always veneer both sides. Otherwise the substrate will warp. I assume it’s related to the wetting and drying of the glue on just one side
