I'm a veneer newbie and picked up a small (1x8') roll of 10mil paperpacked
PSA white oak veneer. I wanted to try it out before I placed a larger order.
It came rolled up, in a tight curl.
I've searched the web and can't really find any advice on flattening PSA
Could someone help and lend some advice please?
Should I use a softening agent like glycerin and water before unrolling and
sticking it to a substrate?
Or will this destroy the paperbacking?
Do I just simply roll it out and the paper will prevent/limit cracking?
Doubt it but there is no need. Your veneer piece is not all warpy, just
set in a curl from being rolled up.
That's what I always did (been decades though)...roll out and weight
down. Maybe lightly reverse roll it. Shouldn't even need spritzing.
