veneering is easy.. infact that was my first attempt..

use non backed veneer

you need:

yellow wood glue, normal clothes iron, old t-shirt, hand held porter cable trim router with flush trim bit, brush sponge.

first study the piece and figure oout were the seams are less visable.. then I took the bottom cabinet, I traced the sides-front-back-top on the venner and cut it with a sharp knife about a hald inch wider than it needed to be. it ended up being 5 pieces per cabinet

I then took the yellow wood glue and the brush spnge and placed a layer on both the veneer and the box and let dry. be sure to anchor the veneer since it will have a tendancy to curl.

once the glue is dry, with the iron and a t-shirt work form the center out to the edges. the heat from the iron flashes the glue and creates a rock hard bond. I spend a little more time on the edges that way it won't chip while routering..

then the traditional sand..sandseal.... then spray on polly
