You need to block sand your mitre joints, then add one strip of banding at a time, trimmed with a fresh blade.

Texas is a bit far....... You don't have to worry about the edge of the veneer showing. It is so thin it won't be noticeable if you don't mitre it. If you veneer first and cut the panels out second you better have a sharp blade.

Default Pre-glued veneer is easiest (which means best)

Get yourself some veneer that is pre-glued. Then all you'll need is j-cloth and a hot clothes iron.
If you get paper-backed veneer using ordinary carpenter's glue (the white stuff) is just as good except that you have to apply the glue -evenly- yourself. Then all you'll need is j-cloth and a hot clothes iron.
Search the internets - all manner of information & some videos to boot.
Contact cement works but is tricky - best left to someone with experience, especially considering the cost of some veneers. If you make a mistake then you're stuck with it (pun intended.)

I'm still waiting explanation of why "hubris" - yes - I (think I ) know what it normally means


frankly, I wouldn't bother with the j-cloth or a linen rags when using a clothes iron - I've actually found slight scorching to be handy in outlining boundaries of cutouts to be trimmed, and since I pencil mark each cut piece for grain alignment, all that easily sands out.

Here is a good site for DIY veneering.
Veneer Application: Iron On Veneer / PVA Glue Method

As long as you know what the end result will be you could scorch the wood . For a first timer I wouln't recommend it. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt (pun intended).

I use spray contact glue 3M90. Just spray, wait for five minutes and
mount the veneer using a rubber roller. Much easier that pva glue and its dry in
just 15 minutes.
