Protection of edges

Edges of veneers laid with hide glue have a tendency to lift or splinter out particularly in the long grain, and they are, therefore, protected either by applied mouldings or edges, or, as in traditional work, with narrow crossbandings of veneer. The process is described on p. 305-7. The shrinkage pull of face veneers as they dry out must be compensated for by a corresponding balancing veneer applied to the underside of the panel, and this is also described later. Veneer edges laid with resin glues do not need protection (287:3, 4), but balance veneering is also necessary.
