How to Repair Wooden Furniture Surfaces: Tips" Because veneer is only a thin layer of wood attached with glue to a solid base, it is very vulnerable to damage on wooden furniture. On old furniture, the glue that holds the veneer is often not water-resistant. Prolonged humidity or exposure to water can soften the glue, letting the veneer blister, crack, or peel. Veneer is also easily damaged from the surface, and old veneers are often cracked, buckled, or broken, with chips or entire pieces missing. In this article, we'll discuss basic techniques to repair veneer on your wooden furniture for any at-home furniture refinishing or restoration project. In most cases, as long as the veneer layer is basically in good shape, the thinness that makes it damage-prone also makes it easy to repair. Blisters Small blisters in veneer can usually be flattened with heat. To protect the surface, set a sheet of wax paper and then a sheet of smooth cardboard on the surface, and cover the cardboard with a clean cloth. Be careful not to use too much glue.

How To Give Veneer Tops New Life Chipped veneer is only part of the damage to this table edge. The layer between the tabletop and the finish veneer has come unglued, too. Veneer damage is a flaw you'll find commonly in old furniture, but one you can fix with surprisingly little trouble. “Veneer repair is an easy job for woodworkers of almost any skill level,” according to San Francisco furniture repair and refinishing wizard Jim Kull. With Jim's encouraging words in mind and his advice close at hand, we decided to give it a try. Spread glue between the layers with thin cardboard or plastic. Provide a solid base first Before we could repair the veneer, we had to get rid of the wrinkles in the crossbanding. Clamp the edge layers. Then, using an old business card, we spread liquid hide glue between the layers, as shown above. Cut away the bad veneer For a nearly invisible repair along the edge, we needed to cut the damaged veneer back to a straight edge to match up with a new piece. We then chucked in the router bit.
