Suggestions on straightening a sheet of warped wood veneer?
posted by Diablevert to home & garden (9 answers total)
I have an old bar I've done over; it came with a sheet of wood veneer, meant to slide over the surface of the drinks-prep area and help protect it from spills. But it was stored in a dusty basement for years before I got to it, and now it's pretty severely warped. Any ideas on how to straighten/flatten it out?
The sheet's about 1/8th of an inch thick and coated with a poly finish (which I've since painted over and sealed on one side). I tried dampening the back of the sheet and pressing it flat while it dried --- after removing the weights it was a bit flatter, but within a day or two had reverted back to its old curved shape.
