I recently glued unfinished wood veneer with contact cement to a
tabletop. A member of the household placed a clay flowerpot on the
veneer, and now it has rippled up and debonded from the underlying
surface. I suspect that water vapour from the pot base evaporated into
the veneer and caused it to ripple.
I know that I can't rebond the veneer, but does anyone know how to
permanently flatten the ripples?
Thanks in advance,

Your suspicions are probably correct. That darn debonding. Toughie. Maybe try
an iron on a med/low temperature, let it dry for a while, then sand the whole
thing lightly. If it works, then finish the veneer with something that'll
withstand your housemates. Tom
Work at your leisure!
Iron usually works reasonably well. If not, inject some glue and clamp
until dry. How to inject? Hypodermic needle or slit the veneer and work
glue under with something thin.
