This stuff is for more than just veneer!
Using to flatten a door panel which was thought to be a complete loss.

Glycerine used in chair caning
Worked perfectly for my purposes. Treated cane was flexible and wove well.

Use for caning
I add this to the water when I soak strands of cane. It seems to help keep the cane softer for a longer period. I also use it as a lubricant to push the cane through holes that already have several cane strands in them. It works great for this purpose.

Veneer Glycerine
My results were not what I expected. The veneer was still a bit "crispy" and difficult to cut the shape I needed. I followed the institutions, however this was my first dealing with veneer.

Use this with cane. It makes it easier to push the cane through holes that already hold several strands.

I really need help in softening basswood practice boards. I can't get the kknife blade to even enter an untreated piece of wood. Water, steam and alcohol plus water help, but do not have duration. I am hoping that the glycerin in water will work. I have tome arthritis, and need help. Ten years ago the practice boards were not this hard, as I have box carvings from then, Thanks cj.

How is this used? Brush it on? soak veneer in it? Thanks, Ken

BEST ANSWER: I use glycerin to prepare reed caning for hand weaving. I take a used plastic whip cream container, fill it to about three quarters full with luke warm water and add one cap full of glyerin to it. I then take a strand of caning reed and soak it in the solution for at least 15 minutes. While weaving the cane i use a small spong to keep the material damp and slipery by sliding the cane material through the foulded damp spong.
