Eighteenth Century Cabinet #8: Video of Curved Glue Up

Here’s the video of the first stage of gluing up the curved side. In this stage the marquetry is not glued to the cabinet. It is laminated into a custom curved piece of plywood with two thin poplar veneers. This will be removed, trimmed and then glued to the cabinet in stage two. This will help stabilize the marquetry against forces in the cabinet and will facilitate accurate placement.
