Been doing some small jobs this week to get caught up a bit.

This is going to be a panel for a WC and cupboard for a cloakroom. Veneers have been prepared to about 100mm wide and the veneers chosen from a few different places from the pack so that the panel looks more like solid walnut pieces. The veneers will flow across all the panels. I sometimes inlay with solid wood where the joins are but tests showed that once oiled the join was acceptable in mdf

First job after pressing was to put a chamfer detail between the joins in the veneer using a 45 degree engraving cutter





Everything was going well until disaster struck and I forgot to take out a spacer jig against the straightedge and the groove was in the wrong place.



As the veneers had all been prepared and they run across 3 panels it was decided to try and repair it. A simple jig was constructed and using a 50mm straight cutter the veneer was removed with the router to the correct depth




Bit nerve wracking but it worked the panel was then re pressed with the same veneer which luckily was some spare available



The panels need to be removable so I used the biscuit jointer for some knock down connectors





First bit ready for installation



Cheers

Jon

Thems knock down connectors look expensive, not like the ones I use.

I can see now why you get the big money :lol:

As Dave said the veneers are from capital crispin in London very good quality of veneers and service. The curved one is finished but are waiting for some tiling and blinds to be fitted before I can get bak to photograph it.

Hi chippy the Iamello connectors work well. Best to use a bit of epoxy when inserting them to keep them in place you need to be fairly accurate in your marking out though

Been fitting this today the bottom panel needs adjusting slightly for the Plummer to finish off.



The doors are on click to open hardware and the parquet floor was done last year by myself



I made a bit of vanilla Corian up into the worktop



Thanks for looking

Cheers

Hi nice job, i was just wondering wont the veneer break down due to the moisture in the bathroom
I don't think it will be a problem. I have used moisture resistant mdf and a fully waterproof glue and there's only a toilet and sink in there so moisture humidity levels shouldn't be vey high

No skills":26ufjn4q said:
Have you put veneer on the back as well?
Yes the back is veneered as well the panels will warp if you don't do it
