Glue types for KamiPLY and WashiPLY and other paperback veneers

We sometimes get asked about which glues should be used for our paperback veneers.  While there are many methods, and many glues, let’s review the two most common glue types for both hobbyists and professional woodworkers working without a press.

While we do discuss some layup techniques and pointers here, this article is chiefly written to help you decide which glues you should use based on your method of laying up, rather than going into too many details about the layup process.   After reading this in its entirety you may also decide on a particular layup method based on the glue you decide to use.   We hope you find this helpful!
