Wood veneers can be difficult to match. It is possible to buy new veneer strips, but they are generally thinner than the old hand-sawn veneers and do not always match in colour. It often pays to go to an auction to look for a broken oddment of furniture that has suitable veneers. To remove a veneer from its backing, first clean off any old polish with white spirit and carefully clean the varnish or wax. Place a damp cloth over the cleaned strip and press with a fairly hot iron. Keep the cloth damp. This melts the Scotch glue holding down the veneer, which can then be peeled off. The same technique is used to raise small areas on the antique piece, but use a soldering iron instead of an iron. Wipe all traces of glue while it is still warm. Dampen the veneer and flatten it between two pieces of wood for about 24 hours before use. Do not let it dry completely, for veneers must be re-laid while still damp and pliable. The replacement veneer should be slightly thicker than the existing one, to allow for sanding. Stick the new strip down with Scotch glue and apply a weight or clamp until the glue has completely set. Wax and polish to match the existing finish.
For example, you may have planned to refurnish your home with expensive hardwood furniture. Given such uncertain times, that may have to change. Instead of wood furniture, you may wish to consider cheaper options such as wicker furniture.
Realizing the business potential of cane furniture, many furniture wholesalers quickly opened a web store front with a mission to export cane furniture to the international market. The wise business decision has, in many cases, paid rich dividends, and some online, international cane furniture exporters have become overnight millionaires by making cane furniture popular overseas.
