    Great that you are making your own gun cabinet. Post a photo of it when you are finished.

    That certainly is a method of applying veneer that I have never heard of before.

    Any particular reason why you are just not using Weldwood Contact Cement?

    It's a much simpler and less involved process and the only problem you'll ever have is getting the veneer back off again.

    Maybe he's going to teach us how to attach a walnut veneer to his Glock. Wouldn't that look nice, a Glock with a walnut finish?

    I'll give the contact cement a try. Only trouble is, there is no shifting the veneer if you need to. Once it's stuck, it's stuck.

    I have done a lot of laminating with veneer as well as w/ Formica. I coat both surfaces and allow them to dry all the way.

    Then I use a sheet of Kraft paper as a barrier between the two cement covered surfaces. Then I get everything lined up and carefully slide out the paper.

    You are correct though. Once they are stuck they are stuck for good.

    I also use the Weldwood for laminating my knife sheath leather layers together. It works just as well as Barge Adhesive and it's more readily available.

    Really pretty veneer that you have there. Exceptional patterning.

    My last veneer project was on a medieval oak hall seat with carved gargoyles on the arm rests.

    It was painted white and I rescued it out of a leaky old barn in Butler County, PA.

    I used English BOG Oak. Bog Oak is made from fallen Oak trees that have been submerged in a pete bog for hundreds of years. The wood soaks up the coloration of the bog water and the natural patina is absolutely magnificent looking when it's finished. I bought quite a bit of it years ago and have no idea if it's still available.

    I love beautiful wood. My favorite exotic wood is Snakewood from Surinam.

    Try to remember to post a PIC or two of that gun cabinet when you get it finished. I would love to see it.

    Yep, I love to work with different types of wood. The wood I was using may have been Quilted Walnut. Not sure. I've had that supply of veneer for a long time and I don't remember. One thing I like about Walnut is how the grain and beauty of it just POPs when you apply oil or poly to it. Another unusual wood I have worked with is Zebrawood. Really pretty and unusual grain, but when you cut it, it makes a wet dog smell good.
