Veneer question ()

Wiley Horne--So. Calif.
Hi Paul,

Is it sawn veneer or the sliced (1/32 to 1/40 or so)? Reason for asking: I have seen sawn veneer of 3/32 or 1/8, and the associated wetting while gluing, do some things I didn't think it would do.

I'm no expert. In fact, the opposite. But if it is sawn veneer, I suggest at least keep both sides of the wood at the same wetness during gluing--use a wet towel on the off side during glue-up if using water-based glue.
