: 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
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.
