Home Made Veneer Tape


Is the glue on veneer tape hide glue and if so, can one make large pieces of veneer tape at home?— George Lang


Jeffery Cooper replies: I once made up a compass rose for another woodworker, who in his eagerness to see the result, removed the veneer tape with a belt sander. Big mistake, and I made him another one. The veneer tape is intentionally thin with perforations and hide glue to allow it to be gently lifted when moistened. Stick with the product readily available. It’s cheap and easy to use.
