Alfredo, I've forgotten to ask you which glue you are using to iron veneering: common "white" vinyl glue?

I've found it on ebay and bought one 16 fl oz bottle of original wood glue. Everybody is speaking very well of this glue for woodworking. From MSDS and technical sheets it is an aliphatic resin emulsion rather than PVA glue. I'll try it to iron veneering.

Alfredo, being original Titebond chemically different from Titebond II, do you think it is suitable to iron veneering?

Not sure if the original is PVA glue. Any PVA woodglue should do.

Hi Alfredo, I've purchased Titebond II so now I can try iron veneering. A question about: did you use a vacuum press or an analogue system or is it enough to squeeze very well veneer with hot iron and veneering hammer? I have no press at all and I suppose it is not possible to use it working with a complete cabinet.
Thanks

No presses. I use regular cloths iron. You need to put two coats on each side(i use a small detail paint roller). Need to wait for glue to dry completely before you iron the pieces together. You can see pictures from another project here.

Many thanks very useful link, and my compliments for your job! I'll try as soon as possible with discarded MDF pieces with walnut veneer. I'll let you know about my results.
Thanks again
