||Veneering is relatively easy. The methods are simple, the tools and supplies are generally in your workshop already, and the skills set and learning curve are very basic. In this class you will learn to turn a piece of substrate into a beautiful cherry board that can be used to create a box, use for the top of a small table, or may other woodworking projects.
You will learn about types of substrates to use, veneer tape and glue, rollers, types of veneer, veneer softener, and vacuum presses. You will have hands-on experience with preparing the substrate, techniques in applying the veneer, presses, and how to “relieve” any waves or bubbles that might occur. There will also be discussion on how to veneer the edges and how to finish your project.
