I’m making some veneered screens to cover 3 alcoves in a new house. Here’s a sketch of the designs. They are about 2 metres high and 1.8 metres wide made up of 4 panels 450mm wide.
I’m going to use walnut veneer for the “ray” shapes. Each ray is made up from up to 5 strips of veneer that are 100mm wide each. The first job is to trim the edges of each strip and tape them together to make 1 large piece.
I sandwich the veneer strips between 2 long pieces of plywood with an aluminium strip set in as a straight edge. At the end of the orange cutter there is a bearing, set to run along the aluminium edge and cut a straight line. I can then tape them together.
