Dumbass question

Hey guys, it's been along time since I posted anything here mostly because business is taking me the way Gino. Which is good and bad in a way. I've been curious about tinkering with carbon and one of the things that I had heard in the past was that Carbon did not take dings and dance so well and that it could compromise it's durability. I don't know where I heard that let's just say they said so. You know what 'they' say. Plus the fact that if you wanted to use some pretty veneers the carbon muted their appearance. Has anyone ever take in the veneers and just glue them on the outside of the carbon? We are talking very very thin stuff. But it would be thick enough to give some resistance to trauma in case your bowl him tapped your Treestand for example, plus put the pretty on the outside of the limb where everyone can see.

Call me a dumbass for asking, I am just curious.

I have no desire to use carbon myself.. I did a repair on a friends bow a few years ago on a LB that had the veneer over the fiberglass. Bow was built by a well known bowyer. What happened was that the veneer was pulling itself apart at the "Vs" in the flat cut wood grain. I sanded the veneer down and used superglue on the veneer, then sanded and sprayed finish..looking back maybe I should have used Smooth On? as far as I know the repair held up.. The only veneer over carbon bow I have seen lifted a edge splinter of carbon and veneer. The Bowyer glued it back down but sanded some of the veneer off the back edge too. I guess if you did it then use edge grain veneer not flat cut..maybe a piece of 0.010 thick glass over the carbon might be the best choice?
