This is the beginning of a long weekend so here is my Friday night progress. Veneering is a very protracted operation. Since you can only do one side at a time and it take 15 to 20 minutes for the glue to set up , the time really gets eaten up. I have found that the best tools at my disposal in no certain order are as follows. My router with a straight bit, a bastard file, block of wood with fine sand paper (400grit) , plenty of utility knife blades. I have found that trimming the edges that are at an angle the best tool is a bare utility knife and plenty of concentration and patience and a steady hand. The glue left behind at the joining edges is a real pain to get rid of . If you don't have much for patience then this is a great way to learn some
. Trust me , one mistake and it takes a long time to get all the contact cement off of the wood so my advice is to not make any mistakes. The picture below shows the edge and top done , this is 5 hours of work. There will be more pics if anyone is interested but not a whole lot of yapping.
Oh Ya its 9:40pm and its still daylight,sun just going down now. Plenty of time for progress yet.
