I've finally perfected my technique for making 1/16" quartersawn oak
veneer, but now I need some advice on gluing it to the substrate. There
will be two pieces side by side, about 30" long, for shelves. The
substrate is 5/8" plywood.
I've made a veneer press, so I will be cold pressing the veneer to the
substrate. But because my veneer is much thicker than the store-bought
variety I'm not sure about the bect way to glue it. I'm thinking of
using the new Titebond cold press glue. Should I use veneer tape, or
with such thick veneer can I just spread the glue out, position the
veneer, and put in the press to dry?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
