Well.. As I suspected when I ordered my marine grade Okume, I was concerned about the thickness of the face veneers (about 1/32"). I was told that they "over sanded a bit" but it was in fact to spec.
In the process of scarfing my panels together, I've had to sand the joints a bit to get a smooth joint and ended up having to go through the face veneer into the darker veneer glue. I can see where this wouldn't be an issue if you had a more substantial, thicker face veneer.
As I'm finishing this boat in the "bright"..and I'm a bit of a perfectionist, this will never do.
I'm thinking I can solve this by epoxying a piece of Okume veneer (app. 4 inches wide) over the joint, and then feathering that into the two pieces making a very nice,almost seemless joint.
Does anyone know where I can find Okume veneer (just veneer..1/32")? Just need a few small pieces to overlay on the joints.
Or, how to "seperate" face veneer from the 4mm stock, so I can just use that? Will heat seperate the veneer's?
