Poor quality veneer core5/11
Are others out there having trouble finding a good quality veneer core for hardwood plywood? We get a lot of voids just underneath the thin veneer layer. This ends up with ripples across the finished product, and a chance that the veneer could "collapse" in the void.
I switched to MDF core for hardwood veneered panels a long time ago for this very reason.
I switched to a product called Armor Core.It's a plywood core that has an 1/8" layer of MDF just below the face veneer on both sides.The advantages are;
yes, and its very frustrating. Started using the mdf outer core as mentioned above from time to time or sometimes I buy 1/4 mdf core and laminate over 1/2" prefinished for my ends
Thanks for the suggestions. We like the quality of MDF core, and also Armor Core, but, most of our work is in bars and restaurants. Need to use VC for the amount of water, and moisture involved. Columbia is making an MPX core, which is said to have a FULL layer of void free core under the veneer. This is just not true. We'll keep looking. Thanks.
I'm in Canada. My supplier has just brought in a poplar veneer core that is the best ply I have ever seen. The core is void free one piece per ply - no lapped joints. The face is a one piece poplar knot and patch free.
