David Welter and the students at College of the Redwoods don't work with commercially available veneer; they prefer to saw their own. The reason? Shop-sawn veneers are thicker and more forgiving, and they make it easier to perfectly match all the wood in a particular project. Learn how to choose the right blade and resaw veneers of a consistent thickness, how to arrange veneer leaves for the best appearance, and how to glue up veneer for the best results. You'll also learn two methods for applying edge-banding.
