screws / staples popping up12/22
on a cabinet we screwed and stapled plywood down and veneered over it. Now the screws and staples seem to be popping up. I'm thinking this is due to storing the cabinet in a colder place then the place they installed it.
The substrate is shrinking? Is the veneer finished? Is the inside finished?
The problem you describe is called 'telegraphing' - where the face veneer shows things that are going on under the veneer. Veneer (raw or sheets) should not be treated like plastic laminate. It is generally laid up onto sheet goods before assembly, and p lam is laid on after assembly.
Veneers is glued with good quality veneer glues, under pressure, and p lam with contact cement.
Veneered work require joinery and clean and clear substrates whereas p lam allows quite a bit more in the way of screws, pins, etc, as long as they are are leveled off.
Thank you eddie and dave.
