In this article you will find detailed information and make it self-explanatory instructions with photographs that show you how to glue veneer.

Both in terms of new interiors, as the maintenance of the interior and functional, but a bit older and battered furniture, can benefit greatly from being able to deal with veneers. If you have never tried it might seem dissuasive to work with paper thin wood. In fact, it is quite easy. By using veneers whenever possible saves you also a lot of money as material, compared with solid wood are considerably cheaper.

Natural wood contributes almost always make a home warm cozy and pleasant. The main reason for example interior desires of that sort too often not realized is the high cost of massive wood. In particle board or other flat, suitable surface veneer can be enacted or preferably glued. The same applies to many other interior details, such as cabinet doors and furniture. While there are now a wide range of newly manufactured furniture at affordable prices, but too often we cashes include a cupboard, table and seating of the older dates completely unnecessarily.

It need not be anything wrong with the furniture’s functionality to its surface no longer suited to the style home in general. It is also not very difficult to veneerĀ a table top than for example the paint. BI is a work in basically the same. It must be flat, clean and free of paint and grease.

The cost of a veneering can often control himself quite well. It’s mostly a matter of how exclusive it is in the choice of materials. The range of veneers is very large and the price will vary both the thickness and type of wood. If you choose veneers given to later add the same material, there may be reason to forgo mahogany and similar exclusive imports. Yet there is such material in rather large stocks, but these are not filled on the particularly fast pace in view of the rain forest protection.

The equipment you need to be self FANERA is fairly simple. Most of the tools are available in a standard equipment. The only exception is probably clamps. In each case it can be a greater number than is usual in a home workshop. For the most part tend to be able to solve the problem by borrowing from neighbors and friends.

But to succeed really well one must also be equipped with well-developed senses of accuracy and patience. It is extremely important that the adhesive adheres well everywhere and polishing of edges and the like is done so carefully that no chipping of the surface.

Three gluing

Plywood can be attached to the substrate with a thin pin, but the support is any type of wooden board gives it almost always benefits to glue. You can use three different types of glue commonly Joiner, waterproof adhesive and contact adhesive. It is called Joiner’s PVA glue and is most common. It can be used even in moderately moist environments, but for safety’s sake you should paint the PVA glued veneers. Veneer can be exposed to water you should use polyurethane or any other frothy, waterproof glue. This assumes, however, that the surface is waterproof and that all end grain provided with glued edges.

Finally, you can use contact adhesive. It’s a little harder to deal with because it “bite” as quickly and therefore make it difficult to correct if necessary. displacements.

Plywood taken out of the most diverse types of wood. The most common thickness of the veneer is 0.8, 1.5 and 2.8 mm. When it is cut into slices from the tree trunk grain will lie almost parallel to the edges. It is then called sliced (for hours).

When the veneer peeled from a tree trunk rotating forming uneven grain pattern. This is called peeled veneer (T v). But at the same time providing contact adhesive is a great advantage: you do not have to put the veneer surface in the press. Contact adhesive is especially suitable when working with large surfaces. Veneers can be almost paper thin and then is full of practically invisible pores. During the press can glue go up through these pores and to the veneer will not stick to the pressure disc, you must always add a thin plastic sheet between these two surfaces.


worth knowing

Veneers are sold by timber merchants, often by companies specializing in material. Veneers in smaller formats can sometimes get in the building stocked markets. It is also called gelatinized fanerremsor that can complement along the edges of, for example, gaps or the like. It attaches them easily by plating the strip with the help of an iron on low heat.
