Wood Veneer

view profile

Probably one for Ron's Ian, but obviously open to all.... I have just purchased a length of Teak Veneer off e bay with which I plan to cover the wooden panel that I made for the "under companionway" tool locker, as I really don't like the natural ply against the teak surround.
My question is what glue do I use to attach the veneer to the ply? is it just a contact glue like Evo Stik? or do I need something special?
And what do I do to treat it afterwards, just wax or seal with a varnish?

Contact adesive (evo stick) A sanding sealer first, then a varnish or
Rustins Danish oil or Decs ojil , (same as Goskar int) Make sure you soak the end grain or damp will enter,

The panel it is going onto is already heavily varnished, presumably I just sand that back to get a key then glue the veneer direct to it, then are you saying to seal the veneer after gluing before varnishing?

You should sand back well , every bump will show,veneering is not easy,,, use a fine serrated spreader for the glue. Yes glue on, seal ,light rub and varnish .
