For lovers of hard wood, of which I am, utilize veneers is not always attractive, but in a project, depending on technical factors and decorative, It can be advisable use boards. If they were visible, were veneer for aesthetic reasons.
To clean my conscience, comfort me thinking that the veneer after all is solid wood. Besides I procure utilize plywood boards, they went made with overlapped wooden veneers.
I flee of agglomerated boards (shavings/sawdust and glue in very high proportion), or MDF (Medium Density, wooden Fibres more agglutinates). Yes,I have read it,I have heard it and I have seen it: the MDF is very stable and it has a very smooth surface,it works very well and it constitutes an ideal surface for veneering. Excellent! ... But it only likes me to build jigs or templates.
If sometime you have needed veneer a board and have not dared, or no has occurred how you do it, I enclose you a presentation where veneer a small panel, for the side of a small drawers cabinet.
For veneers large areas, it would be necessary to have of more tools like a press, a bigger table saw and more clamps.
I hope my experience was of utility for somebody.
If you can not see the presentation, you can bring it down through this link:
