    Default VIDEO- Gluing Burl Veneers to back of headstocks

    If you enjoy such lutherie videos, please SUBSCRIBE.

    He is my method for gluing burl veneers to the backs of my headstock.

    This works with and is a good method for any wood, not just burl.

    Excellent video.. Two questions: What epoxy do you use? What is that thin foam padding?

    I'm just taking a wild guess, but if I had to bet, I would say West System. It's been around a long time, and it has an excellent reputation.

    I've always wondered about headstock veneers with friction tuners . Seems like a bad idea with all the tightening and loosening of the tuners.

    I agree the more layers you have the more problems could happen with friction tuners.

    However, I would never install friction tuners on any instrument I made....cuz they suck... and its' 2020 not 1720

    WEST SYSTEM.
    the foam padding i THINK i got from lowes and its draw liner- it's pretty nice as its thin but foamy to give just a little bit of cushion- i use the same stuff to laminate sides.
