Double Up Veneer for Thickness3/13
I am working on a project that I would ideally like to use some veneer over 1mm thick. Problem is that I can't source it based on grade and origin requirements. The best I can get is a standard 0.55mm thickness.
Is there anyone here that has essentially laminated two thicknesses of veneer (I am using a vacuum bag with PPR adhesive) to achieve something similar? I'm assuming it would be best for me to cross band the layer beneath the face on an initial glue-up, and then press the face layer in a second stage.
I have never even given this any consideration until a sales rep suggested I consider it as I don't meet a minimum for them to custom slice a log.
Thanks for any input!
Just curious what the perceived benefit of having the 2nd layer of veneer would be? Seems like quite a bit of extra work and cost for little to no reward?
I can't answer your question as I've never tried it, but hopefully someone else will be able to shed some light.
We have done this many many times. "uni directional" and "crossbanded" opposing directions. We use it when we have telegraphing concerns. For example shop made lumber banded sheets or when we laminate 3 or more panels together to make a thick panel the edgebanding will be either unidirectional or crossband depending on what application case by case. Many veneer suppliers should be able to lay this up for you in whatever widths you need up to a full sheet as large as their press
