Pine Veneer - Office Cabinets
Good day everyone - I am beginning to plan out a custom office. The office desk, cabinets, and such ideally will look like Pottery Barn - Bedford collection. Luckily for me, their website explains exactly how they finish the furniture:
"COMPOSITION & CONSTRUCTION
Pine veneer over MDF (medium density fiberboard). MDF is known for its strength and stability. It won't crack, and finishes adhere well to it, which results in a smooth end coat. Joints have 90-degree angles and are glued and nailed. Smoothly painted with lacquer sealant. Finished on all sides. The aniline-dyed black finish is a rich stain which allows visibility of the wood grain. Also available in Mahogany and Antique White (a solid color finish). A 10-step application by hand of either high-gloss paint or high-gloss stain to the frame, sides and interiors, followed by a clear lacquer topcoat applies to all models of this bookcase. The aniline-dyed-black model is distressed by having hand-sanded edges, and hand-rubbed to reveal the wood grain underneath."
I have two questions based off that information:
1. Can anyone recommend a place to purchase pine veneer in Minnesota, or from the web?
2. Should I veneer the MDF, and then cut it to size. Or should I cut the cabinet and desk pieces and then veneer them individually?
