  1. Substrate Thickness for Veneering

    Good Point! How would 1/4" plywood work with Veneer on both sides?
  2. I have a blanket chest project on the radar that has some plywood panels in it. I am thinking about using cherry for the lumber and maple for the panels, but then it hit me, why don't I veneer some really figured veneer to the panels. So, here is my question: Is 1/4" MDF to thin for the substrate under the veneer? I realize I will have to veneer BOTH sides of the substrate panel. Thank you for the help.

    34 degrees and trying to snow. Supposed to change to rain by around 10, it probably will. Snow showers with little or no accumulation the rest of the week.

    30 degrees, less than 1" of snow. They say we are going to be down to 18 tonight and chance of more snow over the next few days. I will wait and see if they are close to right. So far, they have not been.

    I agree with you, Bill. It is a knee jerk reaction. Guns are the easy to see, easy to blame problem. 30 or 35 years ago, my buddy would bring his shotgun to school and keep it in our locker since he would walk home with me to go hunting after school. Not one person ever made a big deal about it. Today's kids are not allowed to fight. If they are being bullied, they are not allowed to stand up to the bully without getting kicked out of school. Then you have the social media thing, which was not around 30 years ago. That has HUGE influence over kids and adults alike and very often, not in a good way. Until ,WE as a society, want to address ALL of the causes, we will continue to have shooting. The GUN is only the instrument, not the cause or reason.

    No worries Cal, no apology needed. I did not take offense. Like you said, I only posted that to set the record straight about the "18" the press is spewing all over

    They claim these stats, but read this for a more true number: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/breakingnews/no-there-haven’t-been-18-school-shootings-in-2018-that-number-is-flat-wrong/ar-BBJbqgy?li=BBnb7Kz

    25 this morning. Forecast is sunny and 57 for today, snow turning to rain in the AM for VD.
  15. Wife and I took a trip over to Gold Beach on the coast Saturday, stayed the night and came back on Sunday. While we were there, we stopped by a Myrtlewood store and picked up some pieces of live edge boards for some shelves she wants to make. I will have to edge join some other boards to these to make them wide enough to a practical shelf. On the way back, we took a detour and drove through Jedediah Smith State Park along the Smith River looking at all of the redwoods there. It was nice get away, although short.
