Building a dresser. It has a sort of panel and rail ends. Veneer ply, solid
The assembled panels fit into legs. The panels have a 3/8 rabbet on the bac
k, the legs have grooves down the center.
I thought I was wise and refinished separately, the legs and panels. Howeve
r, I failed to leave alone the part of the panel that fits into the groove.
I used polyurethane.
It seems that I'm stuck. I want to glue the panels into the legs, but the t
op of the panels have this coat of poly (it's thin), the bottom is still ra
w. I can scrap/sand the solid rails, but curious about the ply. I'm afraid
that I won't get down to raw ply without sanding through the veneer layer.
Here's the question - is there anyway to fix this? Is there a glue that wil
l allow you to adhere two pieces of poly finished wood? A buddy and I think
that perhaps we should pin nail from the back of the leg, of course scrap/
sand the rails and do as best as we can on the plywood.
Suggestions would be most helpful.
