Faced-up mouldings of richly figured wood in antique furniture were usually wide in section and glued to a pine core (307:2), no doubt to save valuable wood but also to cut down shrinkage in sections worked cross grain.
may require a flat board laid along the length and cramped/clamped in position (307:24). Hide glue is very suitable for veneered flutings which are stopped at each end, as the heat and moisture will soften the veneer sufficiently to follow the compound curves. If a moulding to be veneered has sharp corners or arrises then a composite assembly should be adopted, and 307:25A, B. C show the stages.
