Veneer Door issues

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Please see the below where I have unstainable squigles in the raised panel.

Probably glue line or squeeze out.  

Do I dare to strip and sand out risking cutting thru the veneer?

Maybe a brown and black sharpe?

Need your help!

That is the veneer stitching showing, I have no solution. Nice color.

So Veneer stiching cannot be sanded out.  If I cannot color it then I have to live with it?

Does any one but you see it, or comment on it?

 

I have no solution, but if it were me I would experiment on an obscure place with those stain felt pens to see if there was a way to break up the pattern so it would be less noticeable. I have seen the painters draw in grain on wood such that it looked real. It will be a time consuming job though. Are these new doors or are you refinishing old doors?

Don't believe I ever seen a zigzag line like that before. Its sure not glue ease out. 50 years from now you won't even think about any more...

Call in my ignorance How do you do a raised panel with veneer? All I have done and seen are solid wood or plastic. If this is wood can sand , if not maybe make a matching strip (no squiggle) on both sides of the door to cover it

Michael, not being a smart arse, but I like it, I love inconsistencies in work, I'd keep it. Seriously.:) I would not try to fix it even if I wanted too.

I agree, adds character to it.  Who would think a tree had stitching?  It has a unique and very even appearance.

OK thanks for all your replies.  I will leave it along and make it a feature to be enjoyed or ignored.

Thanks all.

Since we cannot tell how noticeable it is, or which panel it is on; please let us know if anyone ever asks about it.

Could the door be swapped with another in the house that would be in a less noticeable spot?

Was the veneering done with a vacuum press and heat ?  Only way to veneer a raised panel that I know of.     If so the issue is the stitching is a hot melt glue process and then heating it again with more glue probably made it bleed through the veneer.  I would consider placing a coat of finish on then see if glazing will blend it in more if you want.  Roly

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
