1. Thanks. About the veneer thickness jig – Are the thickness guides glued or double sided taped into place?
    Also, how does one ensure the thickness of the guides themselves are accurate?
    There is potential for a tools and techniques video here.

    1. Paul said the key is to keep the piece long when cutting and planing it to a gauge line. So plane an edge true, then mark to 1/16″, cut on the waste side leaving enough to plane to the line. You can clamp one end to the bench when planing to the gauge line. Then cut it to the required lengths. Does that help?

    2. Frank, usually double sided tape works for the rails. Just to be safe, I usually put a screw up against the rails and (where the plane exits) so that it helds that taped rail in place well. Make sure the screw doesn’t catch the plane obviously

  2. When Paul into’d this project, I knew it wasn’t something I’d ever build–not a style I like–but as he shows in this video, there are so many techniques that translate to other projects, like creating veneers.

    1. All of the works that Paul shows have got so much info in it. Although, however I’m catching up with him, I think that sometimes novice woodworkers may not fully understand the techniques. So discussion is encouraged.

  3. Having some technical issues with the video. I am trying to fast forward and everytime I try, the video plays the beginning title section and starts from the beginning. Sometimes it fast forwards, but eventually it jumps back tot he beginning.

  4. Hey Team Sellers!

    I recently ran into a problem using veneering for side panels in a bed side table build. After a few weeks (and admittedly a change in humidity) the veneers started to crack, mostly at the glue lines between two veneers (I used seven 40mm wide strips of veneer to cover a panel).
    Is that generally to be expected when veneering larger surfaces, or might my veneers be too thick (approx. 2mm) or could it be the movement of the substrate (plywood in my case)? I’m a bit lost at the moment.

    Thanks for your advice!

    1. I asked Paul and this was his reply:

      Did you do both sides of the panel? Generally whenever we veneer a substrate we do both sides. This evens out the intake of atmospheric moisture making the substrate more controlled. This could be the source of your problem.
