Veneering - Movil

  1. 1. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Project DescriptionPanel to the side of a small cabinet.This will be fitted in a frame of beech(Fagus sylvatica).The veneer is of Hondurasmahogany (Swieteniamacrophylla), the wood I will use forthe drawer fronts. The scientific name is very important to know with that wood we go to work. The common names vary according to countries, regions, provinces, populations, warehouses or professionals. Besides in this case they exist quantity of substitutes to which are also called Mahogany, being the most known the "African Mahogany" (Khaya senegalensis). The Honduras mahogany that I will use is genuine mahogany, although the mythical is the Mahogany of Cuba (Swietenia mahagoni), this last has been the most appreciated wood in cabinetmaking, but in Once I went to buy hard maple and I asked the salesman: It’s Acer saccharum or the actuality practically has disappeared. Acer saccharinum? Still I remember his amazement face!
  2. 2. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects) Materials and tools
  3. 3. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Wood to useMahogany (Swietenia macrophylla)Veneer of 0.6 mm.Ilomba (Pycnanthus angolensis)16 mm plywood. Is often popularlycalled "marine plywood" the veneerthat form it are bonded with phenolicglue, that do it resistant to moisture. In the Manuel Soler’s website: http://www.xiloteca.com/ you can find related more than three thousand wood species, with his scientific and common names.
  4. 4. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Interest rules• The board larger than the panel.• The veneer larger than the board.In this case, we can appreciate that aside of the board protrudes to theveneer. It doesnt fulfill the secondrule of the billed, but I take one that Ihad in that size- At the end it was ususeful, being able to cut it when wewant.
  5. 5. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Gluing utilitiesGlueVarnish rollerMasking tapeTransparent polyethylene filmGlue: The more classic woodworkerswill use hide glue in flakes, forafterwards melt it. The more restlesswill use contact adhesive. The morepractical the "white glue" (PVA) . But Ihave chosen a special veneering glue.Masking tape: I have choose theblue, because it adheres less than theyellow, the risk that damage thewood is minimum.Transparent film: Yes, that! Yes, that!The one who we have in the kitchen.
  6. 6. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Surface to glueWe delimit the surface to glue.It’s necessary to avoid apply glue inthe no covered part by the veneer.Afterwards it would cause us problemsto the hour of press it.
  7. 7. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Surface to glueWe apply glue to the board.The special glue for veneer allows uswork calm.
  8. 8. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Surface to glueWith the varnish roller we extendthe glue.The use of the roller facilitates a lotthis work. I learned this practical gluing method watching a video of Steve Latta, a renowned teacher of woodworking in the USA. Very entertaining!
  9. 9. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Surface to glueWe must achieve a uniform coat.As you can see, the glue covers thewhole of the surface to veneer.
  10. 10. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)TrickIf we wrap well the roller withtransparent film, we will avoid thatit dry during a month at least.
  11. 11. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)GluingWe put the veneer on the boardalready glued.The veneer is placed so that itprotrudes by as many edges aspossible.. As you can see, it looks alittle of glue. No problem!
  12. 12. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)WarningWe must avoid that the board willbond to that we use for pressing.The polyethylene film preventsbleeding through the open grain, ourpanel can be bond to the board use forpressing.Be careful! Este truco lo he visto en … ¡ no me acuerdo!
  13. 13. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Pressing Tools 41 - Plywood of equal or greater size 3than the future panel.2 - Strong strips, in this case theyare of beech (Fagus sylvatica).3 - Bench Holddowns. 24 - Bar clamps. 1
  14. 14. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)PressingNow, we press the panel between aboard and the workbench surface.Pressing time depends of the glueused. Consult the product label.
  15. 15. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)PressingIf we do not have a workbenchor some holddowns, this is agood alternative: the panel ispressed between two thickboards.We will use six bar clamps andsix wooden strips.Here Ive used quick clamps, butI prefer the traditional barclamps.
  16. 16. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)After the pressing time, the boardis thus ready for the next steps.
  17. 17. Woodworking for amateurs Veneering (Small projects)Removing the excess 1stpartIn this section we proceed to remove A2the A1 and A2 excess. A1
  18. 18. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects) Removing the excess 1st part (Tools) Mallet Chisel The chisel very sharpened and better when wider, because we will do fewer cuts and we will get a better finish. In this task I used one of 40 mm, about 1 ½”. This is the link of my friend’s video Julio Alonso, where you can see the better mode I know to sharpen a chisel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fG1VjV-ZtOA
  19. 19. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Removing the excess 1stpartPlace the blade on the remainder.Pressed the blade with your indexfinger against the edge of theboard, so the cut can be flatter.With thumb and index fingercontrol the verticality of the tool.
  20. 20. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Removing the excess 1stpartA blow with the mallet.A workbench covered withwounds, is a sign of experience, butthe wrinkles on the face too. For thisreason I prefer to look afterit, within an order, for it has time togrow old.I have placed the cut surface over aboard, plywood of course, I keep itfor these cases.
  21. 21. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Removing the excess 1stpartHere we can see the surplus asfollows.Blow by blow we will finish theedge.
  22. 22. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects) ndRemoving the excess 2part (Tools):Top table saw. 1I will use a small top table saw, thecutting height is just over 2 cm(about 3/8”), so it is suitable forsmall projects and modeling.Nothing else!Ive had to adapt a homemade fence(1) to extensible Guide (2). Of originit can only make cuts about 10 cm(about 4”) width, in this case weneed 24.6 cm (about 9 11/16”). 2
  23. 23. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Removing the excess B22nd partWith the chisel, we have cut theexcess in the cross direction of thegrain. Sides A1 & A2. A1 A2With the saw, we will do it in theright direction of the grain. SidesB1 and B2. B1
  24. 24. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects)Removing the excess 2ndpart B1As you can see, on this edge theveneer protrudes above andunder, so with the chisel we don’twork well, on the first face we willwork with the tool angle and wouldnot be straight edge.
  25. 25. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects) Removing the excess 2nd part B2 You can see that with a cut removes the two remaining. B1 By having a edge without veneer (B2), we have a perfect support on the fence and therefore a straight sawing.
  26. 26. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects) Removing the excess 2nd part When we will remove the extra edge (B2), the panel will be the final width.
  27. 27. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects) Removing the excess 2nd B1 part We sawed flat on the side B1.
  28. 28. Woodworking for amateursVeneering(Small projects) END OF TASK Here is our finished panel.
