You definitely want to wait until the glue that you are using to apply the veneer, has fully set before finishing. That way, you can blend the stain with the surrounding areas.  If you are thinking about using Durham's Rock Hard powder, I would forget that idea because of all of the necessary sanding and the fact that most veneer is so thin. If you don't have a good sharp small razor knife, I would certainly invest in one in order to get straight cuts in the existing veneer in order to be able to apply to new veneer. In some cases, you can get a better match by overlaying the new veneer with the old and cutting through both pieces at one time.

Here is one of the knives that I am talking about. These are great.


Good Luck

Am about to install a 6 inch wide strip (48 inch) on the bottom of the front panel of a mahogany “cedar” chest.There are about 6 missing sections, each about 1/2 inch wide and from 1 to 4 inches long.I suspect these areas need to be filled?Thought of using Rock Hard powder, but that is indeed rock hard when you need to sand it flat.Other suggestions welcome.Looks like there will be enough veneer left over to experiment with different mahogany stains & finishes.Am assuming that applying stain should wait until the material is installed and “set-in”?Thanks !_______________________________________________I want to be one of my friends for a day so I can see how cool it is to hang out with me.Woodworkers at lists.sawdusters.orgTo unsubscribe from this list -http://lists.sawdusters.org/listinfo.cgi/woodworkers-sawdusters.orgAddress to contact the list ADMIN staff -woodworkers-owner at lists.sawdusters.org
