I’m making tabletop games using 1/4” flatsawn maple and walnut, the games are about 5” x 5”. I was wondering what is the best way to glue the faces together to restrain movement, should the grain of the maple and walnut go in the same direction or should they be perpendicular like in a plywood? And when gluing the two faces together, should the annual rings be facing each other or not, or in the same direction?
I understand that there will always be movement and that it varies with the humidity of where you live, but just trying to minimize them and optimize the longevity of the piece.
Thanks for your help!
