Wherever practicable frames moulded on the inner edges should be put together dry, planed off smooth, face veneered and then moulded and assembled. Alternatively, the moulding can be worked in strips and glued on. If the framework must be moulded and assembled before veneering, endeavour to keep the veneer flush with the inside edges of the frame and clear of the moulding which can have a coat of polish to prevent the surplus glue adhering. While it is always risky to veneer the frame sections first and then cut the joints, the expert worker might not hesitate to do so.
