Can I mix raw with paperbacked veneers?

Can I mix raw with paperbacked veneers?



I have a several sheets of raw veneer, 1/42″ thick, that I would like to use on the visible parts of furniture. The substrate will be 3/4″ birch plywood. Since I don’t know how 10 mil compares to 1/42″, can I safely use the 10 mil paperback veneer as backing?


You can feel comfortable using 10 mil veneer as backer material. The paper layer only makes it .0010″ thicker than a raw veneer. I hope this works for what you’re doing. Feel free to call or respond with further questions. Good luck!
