#73 – Recoveries – Fixing Veneer Bubbles and Related Topics

Let me be the first to admit that doing 12 veneered panels of varying sizes in my shop is kinda no fun. Takes all the available space between bags, work tables, “veneer flattening areas”, and places to aerate the finished panels until they finish curing. Plus at night when I’d think, “oh, time to go make another panel”, I had flashbacks of the movie “Groundhog Day” only without the fun of ice carving.

All the burl panels came out great; only one has a bubble on it so we’ll go repair it and talk about a couple other related topics including an experiment I did with some of the remaining scrap veneer to see how fine a gap you can get away with during a glue-up.

I’ve scraped and sanded all but this last panel now so we can move on to looking at the drawer webbing and back column.

Hope the weather in your area is starting to feel more like shop weather!
