Re: Veneer question
Response To:
Veneer question ()

Tony - Memphis
I have broken the "veneer both sides" rule many may times. Never had an issue. I've done panels, small items, etc. I do usually finish both sides. Especially for small boxes, I sometimes like the contrast of a lighter veneer inside (although I usually use MDF and a veneer like satinwood on the inside).

For something that small, I would use whatever glue I had and a platen and clamps to clamp it. I've used the urea glues, liquid hide glue, and yellow glues. I tried the "new" glue from Joe's and have had pretty good luck with it. It is nice that it is water based and is not supposed to creep. I tried it on a round table top with lots of pieces and I have not seen any issues with it yet (a couple of years).
