Ok, now you're saying, this is all great info but what glue can you use to glue up the veneers. Actually, you can use just about anything. You can use white glue, Cyanoacrylate, West System and our own Finishing Epoxy. So which is best? Well, the Cyanoacrylate will dry super fast; the West takes about 24 hours for a full cure and our Finishing Epoxy will dry in about 20-40 minutes. Now, depending on your patience level and how fast you want to use them determines which to use. So, the Cyano is too fast and West is too slow. So, guess which is best. You can use the thin Cyano to glue up the veneers to a 45 degree angle and West to glue in the point wood.

Once we have picked out our veneer choices, we then decide what order they need to be in. We apply glue to each layer and place the other color on top. Once this set is complete we wrap it. When all the sets are done, they are then placed in our veneer press for a full 24 hours. We then take them out and we have perfectly glued and most importantly, flat sets of veneers. The veneer sets are then run through our special veneer saw which cuts a perfect 90 degree angle. The veneers are then glued at a perfect 90 degree angle. Once they dry (24 hours later) we then glue in the center wood and that is allowed to dry another 24 hours. What you then have is the next photo.

You can use Medium Cyano to glue in the point wood but there is no room for error and once you place it in; it's in there for good.

Please Note: When we say 24 hours, this is the minimum allowed drying time; we sometimes allow more time depending on current temperature, moisture, etc. and our mood. :-)
