  • Veneering

    Okay, I've decided to veneer a background for a piece I'm doing. I've actually never done this before, so I am trying to save some money. I bought some 'Pro-Glue' dry powder and have read the directions. My questing is: Do I need to place the glue on the Veneer & the backer or just one... if just one... which do I put it on... the Veneer or the backer?

    Thanks for your help.

    I've never used the product you've mentioned, but I hope you don't mind me suggesting that you veneer not only the front of the piece, but also the back. When you apply a veneer, the glue can tend to distort it's foundation board as it cures. To counteract this you need to either fasten it to something very secure to keep it from warping, or veneer the obverse so that equal and opposing pressure is exerted as the glue cures.

    I'd also suggest that you veneer the sides of the foundation board first if they're going to be visible; you'll get a much better result when you lay the front and rear veneers.

      Shrink wrap systems
      by Linda In Phoenix
      What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

      Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!

      New tools can definitely open up the scope of what we can do, or how well I'm on the band wagon. Congrats!

      At work (like 15 years ago) we got in some aluminum sheet on pallets 4'x12'. Those pallets were like brand new, without even any discoloring from the metals. I asked our sales rep, and he said I could keep one pallet. I removed all the 4' boards, which measured about 1/2" thick, 4" wide...

      I agree that needs to be saved for a special project. The wood is likely oak based on the grain pattern and the discoloration around the nail.
