Applying veneer over solid wood


Hi
Just wanted to know whether you can apply veneer over solid hardwood, such as maple veneer over butternut. If so what type of adhesive would be the best. I will be using a shellac sealer and lacquer finish
Thanks in advance

How big? If big, contact cement works. If smaller - small enough to clamp - any woodworking glue...hide, yellow, urea formaldehyde...

Be certain to completely seal the wood bottom and edges. If the bottom board expands at a different rate than the veneere.......

It is recommended practice to veneer both sides, to deal with the problem Leon touches on. As for glue, how traditional do you want to get? Hide glue <g> but pva will work fine. Don't get the veneer too wet or it will buckle. Need to work out a way of applying pressure over the whole work area.

If you veneer one side, you need to veneer the other side also with the same wood or one with similar movement characteristics or the board will tend to warp.

You can -- this is how all veneered work was done prior to the development of manmade sheetgoods in the early 20th century, but... why would you want to? MDF and plywood are cheaper, more stable, and flatter, than butternut or any other solid wood.
As for glue, use anything other than the contact cement recommnded elsewhere in this thread. The traditional one is hide glue. Yellow glue works okay, and resorcinol glue is better.

As an aside, why not use contact cement? Admittedly, I've only used it once, but it worked pretty well for me the one time. Is it a personal preference, or does contact cement not perform as well under certain circumstances?
Just curious.
