Hello Everyone,
Just uploaded a new video to YouTube. In this video I start my annual show project. This year I am building a Krenov style cabinet on stand. This projects will have some firsts for me. I will be veneering using a vacuum bag. Should be interesting to see how it comes along. Check it out. I have posted a link down below. Don’t forget to Subscribe while you’re there so you will be notified when a new part is uploaded. Thanks. Brian

Looks like you’re off to a good start! I’d love to do some veneering, but don’t have any of the equipment. I’m curious to see your experiences with it.

I just did my first vacuum veneer 2 days ago. worked great, I had never worked with burl veneer before so I learned a lot and it makes getting it laid flat much easier. One mistake I made was not to seal the veneer before adding finish. I used a two part because I wanted a flat high gloss finish and you cannot get all the bubbles out. Tiny bubbles came up into the finish long after my ability to remove them was useful, oh well I learned a lesson and it was just a practice piece.

Thanks for the tip on sealing the veneer before finishing. I will be sealing it with shellac before I apply the finish.
