This is embarrassing, y'all, but I just discovered that I "misglued" one of my birch panels. They're not on the camper yet—they're indoors, propped here and there while I wait for a break in the wintry weather.
Anyway, while measuring and cutting my rigid foam insulation, I discovered that 3 pieces of framing are glued down crooked. They're a full inch off on one side—because I had several pencil lines going, and I guess I paid attention to the wrong line, and that threw off my measuring for the next one, and you get the idea. I'm gonna blame my friend Mike, who was probably talking to me while I was measuring/gluing, even though he knows I have A.D.D. and am no good with math.
SO, ok. These are eighth-inch panels, and it's construction glue. How will I un-glue the crooked framing without breaking or damaging my precious panel, which has been lovingly shellacked and required a 6-hour roundtrip drive to purchase? I have NO extra panels.
Hmmm. I dunno if that would work. I'd have to slice and dice some weird diagonal pieces of framing...my brain can't even handle that right now. The perfectionist in me really wants to un-glue and re-glue. Is this possible? Anyone else made this mistake?
Construction adhesives I have used have been stronger than the panels I glued them with, and usually ripped off much of the veneer instead of letting go. Even though it's a pain, I think Mel's idea is what I would go for. Especially since the section isn't installed yet. Take your time and try to enjoy the challenge. Good luck.
Well, seems like there's a consensus, and thanks for the replies.
I guess it's not necessarily that big of a deal...I'll just have to cut the insulation crooked to go with the crooked framing. If there's any sort of alignment problem when it comes to installing, I will do as y'all suggest and sister in a new piece.
