I want to build some bookshelves. So far, so easy. Now, here comes the
call for help, but let me first give you the basic facts:
I now live in Brasil. Plywood is far more affordable than MDF. Veneers
are readily available in all sizes and widths, but none is
paper-backed. Choices of glues are limited: white PVA, yellow "wood
glue", some horrible epoxy which cures with a grey color, and contact
glue. I do not possess a vacuum veneer press (and do not intend to
buy/build one). My choice of veneer for this application is Peroba
(hardwood, long grain, nice flat veneer sheets).
I'd like to know about your experiences, recommendations and comments
if you can spare a few lines.
I have been browsing a lot already, but it always comes back with
either glue I cannot source here (eg. Unibond 800, unless someone can
tell me what it actually is made of, so maybe I can find an
equivalent) and/or the use of a vacuum press.
Thank you very much in advance.
