can I laminate hardwood boards to plywood to make a thicker looking board. I am making a table top and the only boards I have available are 5/8". I would like to make it 1 1/4" if possible.
Yes you can laminate hard wood to plywood. I have done this many times using a quality wood glue and clamps. In some cases with thinner hard wood I will use a 2nd sheet of plywood to help apply pressure to the veneer after it drys sand and finish like any other wood surface.
