christhegreat Posted July 26, 2005 Report Share Posted July 26, 2005 Hi there. I was suggested to use the Iron method to glue the veneer onto the guitar body. The veneer is flamed maple. 1) Spreaded titebond on both surfaces using a credit card to apply an even coat. 2) Waited a couple of hours till the glue is dried. 3) Used heat from an iron to glue the pieces together. When I practiced on scrap, I didn't notice any shrinking, and the glue joint was solid, so I glued the veneer on the guitar. The problem is the veneer shrinked so much I have a gap of an eight of an inch between the two pieces. I will remove the veneer, that's no problem. But I'd like to know if I did something wrong or if it is normal that the veneer shrinks a bit, and what could I do to orevent this from happening? Thanks.
