Veneer Oxbow Drawer Front
« on: February 08, 2015, 01:59:02 PM »
Hi, I am planning on veneering the drawer fronts on this oxbow chest.  I was wondering if I can veneer the sharp curve blocking near the ends of the drawer fronts? Or maybe slice and miter the piece?
Thanks,
Dave

I would veneer the fronts up to the flats, and then veneer on the flats at the ends.  By following this process, this will allow the veneer to be clamped in place and resist lifting.  You may need to create a back bevel on the flats to help make the joint seamless.  Depending on how thick the veneer you are using, you can possibly hammer veneer it with hot hide glue, or caul it with bending plywood and old brown glue.
