My fellow LJ’s
I am contemplating using mother of pearl laminate for the panel of a small box lid. The laminate is 0.006” thick (which I believe might be somewhat translucent) and I was thinking of applying it over a 1/4” baltic birch ply. My questions are: 1) should I paint the plywood white to hide any grain that might show up beneath the veneer?, and 2) what type of glue would be best suited, with or without a painted substrate?
Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated.
