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.
