methods for stable panel construction8/11
I want to build some panels for a door and I'd like to reduce wood movement as little as possible.
A.3 ply panel with quartersawn woods in the middle and 3mm face veneers.
B. 3 ply with 3 mm mdf core and 6mm shop sawn veneers.
c. 3 ply: 10 mm solid core and 3mm veneered mdf for both sides.
In my opinion, 3 maybe, but definitely 6mm cannot be called veneer because they are too thick and they will act like wood in seasonal movement, not veneer. Sanded to a final thickness of 2.4mm is about the thickest shop made veneer I make. You don't say what kind of door. Passage, exterior, or cabinet? No idea on size either.
thank you rich c.
