Tools for Veneering

You won't need a lot of expensive tools to veneer. The most basic item is a veneer saw, a specialty device that isn't expensive. For measuring and as a cutting guide, you'll use a large carpenter's square and a combination square. A sharp craft or wallboard knife is useful, and so is a small plane for Irimming edges. Most essential is a veneer roller, which turns out to be the same roller used Tor rolling wallpaper seams. These rollers are made of wood. Other rollers, such as those made of rubber, are apt to stain the veneer. Finally, keep some plain boards handy to use as cutting boards. We have found the best size to be a 36-inch length of 1x10 pine.
