How to Glue or nail Hardwood to Plywood: Luan wood

How to Glue or nail Hardwood to Plywood: Luan Wood 

  Some people will not be satisfied with merely nailing Luan plywood boards to hardwoods, such as Maple and Oak. So in this case it may be better to consider gluing your project as well as just using nails, or screws on the project.

How to Bend Plywood

When should you consider gluing Luan plywood to solid hardwood materials?
  If the project were a specific and small area and could be secured with just nails alone, that is not a problem. But, if you want to reinforce with glue and screws you'll likely have a more secure connection between plywood boards and a solid hardwood base. A Few small glue blocks, which should be applied to the underside of the woodblock, and then along the front and sides of the plywood, should give you a pretty solid hold. Then you can use glue and miter the joint to additionally secure the connection.
And there you go.

How do You Bend Wood Without Stem?
This is how you do it.
   You set the depth of the saw so that you don't cut through the wood all the way. Leave a 1/8 to 1/16 inch of wood at the bottom, so you don't go all the way through. 

  Then, mark the wood and cut in to your desired points along the wood paneling.  Again, do not cut the wood all the way, otherwise you'll break or cut through the wood. You just want to cut it enough through the wood to make the board flexible. 

  Next, the step is to make a curving shape from a piece of wood. This will act as a jig for bending the work piece, so the curve must be as deep as you want in the work piece to be. Save the piece of the wood that you make the cut-out for. 

  Last, you should position the wood that you have made the incisions for to make it flexible in the jib and then clamp it together. Allow the wood to sit overnight. And so, the wood will be shaped as you desire when you return.
