Last week I delivered a 8ft long bar to a night club in Sarasota, they called me this week to say that on the inside of the piece, the “veneer” is coming away/separating from the wood. Now, I haven’t seen the problem for myself yet so I don’t have any better description than that. I’m going back Monday to take a look at it, but I’ve never come across this problem before and I’m not sure I know how to fix it. Anybody have any thoughts?
Here are the specs:
A2 3/4 Cherry Ply
1 coat of sprayed dye (thinned with lacquer thinner 50%) *
1 coat of wiped stain
3 coats of sprayed post conversion lacquer (Scuff sanded between coats)
The finish products are used were all M.L. Campbell – production cabinet quality finishes, but it was the first time I used them. (www.mlcampbell.com)
*I’m thinking this might be the problem? Could the thinner have soaked through and disolved the substrate glue?
Any thoughts much appreciated.
