Description
This book is a clear, well-written manual on the craft of veneering that shows you how to turn out your own hardwood veneers beautifuly and economically, With a veneer press that you have made yourself, you can produce beautiful veneer panels that will be durable and unique. Apply them to the furniture you want to finish, and you will have veneered furniture that will look better and last longer than furniture made from "honest lumber." When Paul Villiard found a way to make his own veneering equipment he opened up the craft to a wide audience. With this book you can now make your own veneer press and edger at a fraction of the cost of commercial models. Mr. Villiard also shows you all the techniques of veneering: how to match veneers; how to glue, clamp, tape, and edge veneered panels; how to veneer curved panels; and how to inlay, finish, and repair veneers. To anyone who wants to fix up old veneered furniture, the chapter on repairing veneers is itself worth the price of the book; it shows you how to repair chips, blisters, and stains, even replace pieces that have fallen off, with simple tools. The author also covers cores and core stocks, and 136 commonly available veneers in terms of each one's source, color, availability, and price range. Sixty-five photographs and drawings amplify the text, and sixteen different veneered woods are shown in full color on the covers. Veneering is an ancient and honorable craft, and when you select the wood yourself and do your own construction, you can be sure that the veneers you make will retain their beauty for years, even for generations. This excellent, comprehensive book will give you all the expert instruction you need.
