    I recently bought an Ikea Karlby Walnut veneer countertop to use as a workdesk / table for my computer. https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/karlby-countertop-walnut-veneer-70335212/ I want to apply natural Danish oil onto it. I hope this color will not change the current color or darken it too much...

    I have a drop-front desk with some veneer damage. As you can see from the photos (included at the bottom), it also has a lock with metal ornamentation. The lock probably works, but I don't know that I have ever had the key, so I don't necessarily care about maintaining the lock, but the...

    Hi. So I've been working on this mid-century table for a friend who has already paid me to refinish it for a client who is already interested in buying. I have refinished other projects for him before and they have turned out great. I am newer to woodworking, but know the basics. However, I...

    I have a veneer top nightstand with what looks like a rich mahogany color and satin finish (deep brown with red and amber hues). When I purchased it, there was a stain on top from something that had spilled (guessing acetone or the likes). After working on a few other projects involving...

    VENEER HAMMER, that is. if you google it, there are a hundred different designs to choose from. I've made a couple of veneer hammers in the past and somehow, they just manage to "disappear". so, for another Covid Project, I decided to make another one. I picked up some really nice wood remnants...

    I'm installing a microphone-style pickup in a classical guitar. Pictured is an end cap that covers a port at the bottom of the guitar. When drilling a 7/16" hole through this end cap, how do I prevent splintering of the veneer?

    I found plans and a template to make a Stormtrooper helmet out of cardboard. Once the cardboard pieces are cut, assembled and glued, the helmet is then coated in compound, sanded, painted. What I want to do is cut the many cardboard pieces as instructed, but then use the pieces as a template...

    So I am restoring one of those old metal tanker desks. Originally the desk top was some sort of 3/32" rubber composite material surrounded by that 3/32" high piece of metal banding. (I have attached a picture I found online of a refurbished desk being sold. The owners took off the old top but...

    Hello All. I'm making a tennis racquet from wood and carbon fiber. I ordered some specialty thickness 16th inch veneers, raw cut at full log length. I assumed the Douglas Fir was going to be 10 to 15% heavier based on listings from the Forest Products Laboratory for weights per square foot...

    I have an antique coffee table that's solid wood with a thin veneer top. The veneer has been damaged on one edge where it's been chipped up and one of the panels is starting to pucker. There's also a spot where the stain is lighter from water being spilled and not cleaned up right away. I would...

    Hello, I have a plastic widget that has some smooth, fairly gentle curves that go for about 6" and I want to glue some 1mm or so thick veneers that I have cut out of different types of wood. What would be the best glue to use? CA glue, standard titebond wood glue or something else? I'd like to...

    I recently took my belt sander, set it on its side and set up a fence that allows me to make beautiful strips as thin as veneer. If I ever get into inlays, it means that I can use interesting wood that I might have, and I won't have to buy large pieces of veneer so I can get a small piece that I...

    Hello Folks, I need to get some Maple veneer and edge banding to the darkness of the attached photo. I realize that I should have used a darker material. :surprise2: I was planning to use a sanding sealer first and then General Finishes Water-Based Dye Stains. Comments or suggestions? Thanks...

    I'm looking for a touch up kit that has something that I can use to touch up a table top that has been finished with General Finishes Java Gel Stain and High Performance top coat. There are a couple of small cracks where the veneer has lifted and it shows the original oak color. I am NOT going...

    First, I'm not a professional and I don't play one on TV. ;) I'm refinishing a dining set for a friend (paid!) and I'm staining the top, painting the rest. I stripped with Citristrip, used an after wash, and started sanding the leaves and that's when I realized the table top is veneer. It's...

    I have some Walnut veneered plywood which we need to finish. - see pictures - (so yes, not much ability to sand down) I'm looking to get a finish similar to the one shown in the picture. I've seen this video on finishing walnut which recommends to: 1. Dye the wood 2. Apply Sanding Sealer 3...

    I recently got around to building myself a new dining table. I wanted to use some hot veneers on it and try a leg style that I'd never done before. The result was inspired by the Art Deco master Jacques Ruhlman and done in bubinga, pomele bubinga veneer with white aspen pinstripes. The legs...

    Hi, I am a newbie here. My house has a lot of wood in it, a lot of it is veneer. I'd like to build some new shelves that hopefully match both in grain and color. What wood(s) do you think this is/are? Or what woods should I use to at least try to match? I am going to be using a router along with...
