Topic tags/keywords: question mahogany walnut veneering joining

she put a fish tank on top of the hunch for her pet lizard. ok. but she never told me the bottom had a crack in it, and it licked water. for over a year. Well the lizard crock, dent need the fish tank, and that’s when i found out about the crack and water. well you talk about warp, i mean WARPED about 3/4” to 1 1/2” waves size of a 25 gal fish tank. I HAVE TO LOVE HER AFTER 26 YRS, I DID NOT SHOOT HER. LOL I tried every thing I know how to take out the warp. days and days trying, i got close. but close means not good to me. So I tore off the top walnut lam and made it flat again on top. (no one see’s the bottom, that i can live with) Here is where I may wave have done a real brain fart. I used a mix of 2 glues and saw dust to fill all the air gap to make it flat. IT’S FLAT NOT SMOOTH, VERY PROSE AND FLAT. MY THOUGHTS WERE GIVE THE LAM GLUE SOMETHING TO GRAB. OK is this right or very WRONG ???? i have not worked with real wood lam before. (daaa) SO I thought i had better ask before i lay down the walnut lam. ANY THOUGHTS OUT THERE? ANY HELP? THX’S FOR YOUR TIME E1…. BOB PRATT
