VENEERFurniture manufacturer of plain (uncoated ahah!), the DSP completes its finish. Although this is a simple, but important step, which largely determines the appearance of the finished product. For finishing can be used adhesive tape, textured paper, cloth (linen, cotton) and veneer. The veneer self-adhesive film the most simple. The workpiece is cleaned from dust. Cut a strip of “adhesive” with margins, 5-7 mm; it remove the protective paper and film is superimposed on the detail and smoothed to remove air with a rag or a rubber roller.

Trim textured paper or cloth a little harder. They can be glued to the details of the Wallpaper, carpenter’s glue or PVA, diluted with water in proportion 1:15. Detail smeared with glue of normal consistency with a spatula. Paper (fabric) is overlaid on the detail and smoothed. After the glue dries allowances are cut.
The veneer is more labor intensive, but the finished product look much better than the finished film, paper or cloth. The pre-billet is trying on items and are selected by the pattern texture and color. It should be noted that for the vertical pattern texture detail seems higher; but if the texture image is positioned horizontally, the part seems wider.
After the selection from the sheet of veneer is cut off with scissors of the workpiece with the recess of 15-20 mm, are numbered. Their back side and detail using a spatula covered by a thin layer of PVA glue; everything needs to dry for 10-15 minutes. During this time, the white glue will become transparent. Then, on the item overlaps the veneer sheet No. 1 and smoothed with a hot iron, the regulator which is set to “wool.” The edge width of 15-20 mm, which will dock with sheet No. 2, is not smooth. Further detail is overlaid with the veneer sheet No. 2 with a slight overlap on sheet No. 1 (Fig. 1) and its middle is slightly smoothed by the iron. It is necessary to eliminate the offset of the second workpiece. On overlapping sheets # 1 and # 2 superimposed metal ruler, and both layers of veneer are cut with a knife (Fig. 2). After removing scraps of veneer to the surface and also carefully smoothed iron. It does not matter if the edge of the sheet # 2 will slightly protrude beyond the plane of the part, it is not difficult to remove during final processing. If between the sheets of veneer, a crack of a width not exceeding 2 mm, it can be removed by flattening the edges of the leaves. But if the gap is wider — joint it is better to redo it. So consistently stick all the sheets of veneer.

Special attention should be given to gluing the edges. Iron it is necessary to hold at a slight angle to the plane of the part (Fig. 3). Nepriklausoma part of the veneer and parts in the corners and edges (Fig. 4) additionally promazyvaetsya with glue using a disposable syringe and smoothed. If necessary, and the part ends pasted with veneer on the same technology.
After the glue dries (4-6 hours) protruding parts of veneer are removed with a knife and a plane. The finished product is polished with sandpaper and varnished.
