Hi Group, Looking to put some Birdseye Maple veneer on top of a
dresser. The veneer that I planning on using is buckled. How does one
get it to lie flat when installing with contact cement? Also it's going
to take two pieces. What's the best way to get a barely visible seam
where they're joined? Thanks, Jim
It's possible that whatever server he's using is slow,
and the replies hadn't appeared yet (or his original
post, leading him to think it hadn't gone thru).
Anyway, to the question at hand: are we talking about
putting new veneer on top of a new dresser, or new
veneer on top of an existing dresser, or trying to put
existing veneer back onto an existing dresser?
If it's the last case, trying to re-adhere existing
veneer that has come unstuck and warped, I think he's
doomed to failure. Old veneer is very brittle, I doubt
the trick of running a steam iron over it will work.
