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. Cross-grain edges may have to be knife cut across the face before trimming back with chisel and finely set plane, although veneers laid with resin glues have not the same propensity for splintering out. 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.
