My First Veneered Full Spliced Blank - 09-13-2018, 09:37 AM

Some time back I started building jigs to make my own full spliced blanks. I recently took a trip to Erie to work with Bob Dzuricky on adding mitered veneers to them. Bob documented the endeavor in a video linked below.

I had a lot of fun and am elated at the results. I owe Bob considerable gratitude for leading the way with the veneer work. Thank you.

Here are two pics of the first blank we assembled together. The butt wood is Curupay.

Glad I got to see this KP. I don't think you could have chosen a better mentor, or human being. You'll have your full splice black belt in no time. Outstanding work!

Kelly,

Nice work. Love how tight those veneers are.

That's pretty!

Is the glue dyed black? or is something else giving the very defined/ accented effect?

The black is thin black paper. It is pretty commonly used with the typical .022/.036 cue veneers to create a defined look rather than a classic transition or flame look.
