laminating to mdf board10/30
Hi, I need professional advice with laminating and veneers and I want to know how I could make a product similar to this one:
This is acoustic panel, with mdf cubes with valnut veneered onto the top it, and the back panel is sound dampening material, I have already bought the backpanel material but I am having trouble with the mdf veneering,
Can I laminate the veneer onto a whole mdf panel and then just use a normal table saw to cut it down to cubes? Will I have to plane the cubes individually and sand them down to leave a nice finish? or is sawing them down enough?
If you have a decent table saw and blade, you should be able to rip the MDF with the walnut already pressed on. Glue it in place, then sand the faces lightly and run up and down the edges at an angle to clean up the sawn corners.
If you are buying commercially pressed Walnut on MDF, you should be in good shape. Do not count on peel and stick or similar adhesion methods as suitable for the ripping. When attaching to the larger panel, glue sparingly, but thoroughly.
Fabric wrap a panel, mount the strips to the panel
I'd think you would want to do a miter fold to continue the pattern around the cube.
