    Steven, when I was in early grade school I asked several adults what those numbers were. They didn’t know ,or possibly didn’t want to try

    Most of my veneer work has just been putting patches on old veneered furniture, but I have used platens . I do wonder why the old
    veneer hammer method is never mentioned. Much cheaper than using...

    It’s OK in a shop setting , and I didn’t say it’s horrible, just acrid, and I think that’s the most accurate description. But women have the

    The industry does a pretty good job. My experience with SCM is that they don’t. I think that I mentioned in the first batch of SCM stuff
    that we had trouble getting parts .

    My guess would be it’s Virginia cedar. There was plenty of it , and all of the Western cedar I’ve used was pretty acrid and only used for
