« Part 3: Part 4 Part 4 of Jewelry box series Part 5: part 5a »

Got home walked through the garage and thought lets do some veneering so switched on the hot glue pot and veneered the bottom of the box. veneering inside a restricted space seemed strange.

With that out of the way I decided to give the sides ago.

Well that went well with the old mind thinking of things that could go wrong but just took my time and worked over and into the curves with the veneering hammer making sure that the veneer did not shift from the walnut strip that runs around the top of the box.
With that side going okay so did the other.

In my experience trying to hammer veneer marquetry was a disaster. How did you keep all the pieces together?

Also your last photo didn’t come up. :-)

All I do is put solid width(no holes) veneering tape on the face then press it between so boards to stop the moisture from warping the veneer for a hour or so until the tape has dried.I glue like normal. I don’t have any issues with the tape releasing.
