Re: VX.2 Kit Build.
Picked up the Veneer this weekend.
For my first time working with Veneer I am pretty happy wiht how it turned out. This is a Raw Veneer, there is no paper back, which is what most people seem to use.
I wanted to use the iron on method I had been reading about. But when I put the glue on the back of the veneer it caused the veneer to roll up. I couldnt' apply the glue to the veneer and let it dry as I have read in other posts. Instead I only applied it to the box it self, allowed it to tac-up and then placed the veneer on and used an iron to press it down.
This seems to have worked out pretty well, the venner is on nice and flat, my only problem is some of edges chipped slightly when i was trimming. You have to look very close to find the spots in person but still something I would try to improve on next time.
I still would like to stain slightly and then apply a clear finish.
