Thoughts of veneering can conjure negative images of cheap, shoddy workmanship or complicated, messy techniques, when the reality is quite the opposite. For those that have tried veneering and struggled, Veneering Essentials is an invitation to try again and achieve success with simple lessons and practical projects well within the reach of any skill level or budget. From making your own iron-on veneer to hammer veneering to pressing both mechanically and via vacuum, Veneering Essentials will show you how to use veneer to create beautiful projects that open up countless possibilities in future choices of both wood and design.
In Veneering Essentials you: discover that some of the best wood is turned into veneer and some are much easier to work with as veneers; learn to cut and joint veneers to create tight joints as easily as you would in solid stock; make your own helpful tools and jigs; learn about various adhesives, edging your work and creating stable curved forms; and successfully build beautiful projects using both conventional and not-so-standard substrates.
