VENEER - rebuilding a delftware cabinet


I want to show you how I rebuild a missing area of veneer
on a newly finished antique cabinet top that has just been finished.



This is the second article of the much anticipated VENEER series.
The first article explained how to deal with edge gluing loose veneer


Below is our missing bit of veneer we are going to work on.


Start by sanding any loose bits away.

Make a nice big fat centipede of wood filler.

GENTLEY flatten out the filler, over-filling the area.


Let this harden really good, a whole day would be best.


You need it to be solid because now your going to sand it smooth.


Sand your edges as well.


Paint and you're finished.


And here is the whole cabinet once finished.
