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:

    2. Thank you very much my friend, I'm glad you liked my article. My English is very basic, but I understand that when I recommend putting more pictures, because the presentation has 28 slides, you mean to introduce the human factor. As I think you're right, in my article today (only three pictures), I will do.

      Thank you!

      I visited your website and I really like your pictures, your work, your ideas and ... music.
