Hi: I need advice from someone who has actually has applied 1/8" self-cut
veneer to Baltic Ply. ONE SIDE ONLY. Additionally, this lamination would
then be bread-boarded. This means that the the laminated material would be
completed surrounded by solid lumber. See any problems.??
I did this kind of thing for a project that is still in process. Not bread
boards though as it is basically a panel in a frame to form a box and the
substrate is very thin, 1/4", so I could flatten it out as needed to get it
into the rabets/grooves.
I take it that the bread board in your case is intended for aesthetics
rather than function. I'd be concerned about the panel warping and not
flattening out due to the moisture variance across the two sides. If your
substrate is thin enough to muscle into place you're probably OK. That
said... I'd laminate both sides of Baltic birch of 1/2" or more in
thickness... or maybe moisten it and cover with damp newspaper.
