Laminating Cherry to Baltic Ply

Hi: I need advice from someone who has actually has applied 1/8" self-cut veneer to Baltic Ply. ONE SIDE ONLY. Additionally, this lamination would then be bread-boarded. This means that the the laminated material would be completed surrounded by solid lumber. See any problems.??

I did this kind of thing for a project that is still in process. Not bread boards though as it is basically a panel in a frame to form a box and the substrate is very thin, 1/4", so I could flatten it out as needed to get it into the rabets/grooves.
I take it that the bread board in your case is intended for aesthetics rather than function. I'd be concerned about the panel warping and not flattening out due to the moisture variance across the two sides. If your substrate is thin enough to muscle into place you're probably OK. That said... I'd laminate both sides of Baltic birch of 1/2" or more in thickness... or maybe moisten it and cover with damp newspaper.
