Veneer

Part 1: For any of you, in the North Carolina area, interested in veneer, here's some veneer in your area: http://irsauctions.com/index_lots.asp?pg tails&tot=&id434
Part 2: The pics in the link give a clue as how to assemble veneer work, for a varied configuration. I would have never thought to assemble veneer, by taping the pieces together first, to help configure the overall pattern. I'm sure there is more to the process, than what I've gleened, but I found this taping clue interesting/ helpful, in my understanding the assembly process. I don't do much veneer work, but I'll remember this technique.

This is pretty much the standard way to do it. Several places sell perforated paper tape with a water activated gum (or starch) adhesive. You align the pieces of veneer, tape them together, then glue the design in place. When the glue has set up, you can either re- wet the tape and pull it off, or sand it off.

Add the step of claming the ever loving bejebus out of the piece also.

Hey Leon, what is claming the veneer? Inquiring minds would like to know. I am looking into doing some veneering...

It is a process where you get back to nature and use clams to do the clamping, not politically correct but I'm not that kind of guy anyway. ;!)
In case you were serious, ;~) you want to clamp every square inch of the veneer since it does not have any rigidity.

It also is good to use a thin styrofoam like fanfold insulation to put pressure on even when the veneer is not all the exact same thickness
