I have this nice looking piece of walnut(I think it looks nice), and I want to make 2 small 12-14 inch doors, but I only want to glue a thin layer of this on to a piece of mdf or particle board. If I can saw it off in one nice 1/16-1/8th, I can sand it smooth, glue it on to a board, and have a nice matched set of doors from same piece cut down middle.
Couple of questions if someone can help me before I begin.
Do I run the piece through the planer first to get a nice smooth edge and then try to set the fence on the bandsaw at 1/16 and resaw?
Do I resaw to 1/2 or 1/4 inch then try to plane it down by putting it on top of another piece of wood as a sled?
Can I just glue it onto the mdf board and put a heavy weight on it. Do I need to prepare the wood in any way before glueing?
I dont have any equipment besides the regular tools, so Im looking for something easy enough for me to tackle.(the piece is about 1.5,6/4 inches thick)
