Step Preparing a Pattern

To help us in cutting panel pieces from the veneer, we made cardboard patterns of the different panels — the large drawer, small drawer, and dresser frame panels. We made these patterns slightly oversize so that when the veneer was glued down, we could finish the edges right on the dresser. This method has several advantages. First, when the edges are sanded in place, they blend directly into the side wood of the panel. If the panels were cut to an exact Fit, this might not be the case. Second, these panels were not exactly the same size, varying as much as '/i6-inch in overall dimensions. Ry cutting oversized patterns, we didn't have to make one for each panel, but only one for each type of panel.
