Beautiful patterns, dozens of wood species and grain varieties, and not too much money. These are just three reasons why making a veneered tabletop appeals to many woodworkers. In this Master Class, Craig Thibodeau focuses on using bandings and borders, and his method is both foolproof and easier than the traditional way. Since his tabletops are fully veneered on a stable substrate using a big vacuum bag, adding beautiful bandings and borders is as easy as cutting out pieces of veneer and taping them to a center field of veneer. After laying up the panel, he adds solid-wood edging to protect the veneer and complete the look. From Fine Woodworking #228
