Trimming edges

Veneers should be laid with a generous overlap all round in case they slip during laying, and should not be trimmed back until thoroughly dry.

An excellent veneer-trimmer is illustrated in 283 which cuts the overhang tight against the edge even across the grain, and is invaluable if there is much trimming to be done.
