I have some veneer I am using on some speaker stands. The trouble is the free, note free, veneer is in rather small pieces, approximately 1 ft x 2.5 ft. I need to make a patchwork pattern on the vertical part of the stand. I have been told the way to butt or overlap veneer is to place the two pieces over the top of each other and then cut both at the same time with a sharp knife. The same way you do wall paper. Is this the best way to go, or is there a "more better" way? I know the best way is to order some veneer the proper size, but I am working on the free part of the equation here.
