Veneer adhesion


Recommended Posts

The only thing I would worry about useing a hot melt glue is that you could potentially burn the wood. I did a good job burning the botched veneer when I tried to remove it with an iron. Sure that means that the iron was too hot, but I would hate to think that I could burn the veneer and glue it down to the guitar body at the same time.

Eeeek... :o

heres a tip for removing old veneer. I use an Iron and an old t-shirt.Dampen the t-shirt and Use the steam setting on the iron. The steam softens the glue really fast and doesn't seem to bother the wood underneath. It removes most of the glue as well which makes for easier sanding. Works really well when removing a fabric top as well. Brian you might want to put this in the tips section :D
