George Vondriska teaches you a quick and easy trick for iron-on veneer applications. This example involves applying veneer to MDF using a household iron and a recycled paper grocery bag. You can iron the veneer onto a substrate by painting both materials completely with yellow glue and then rubbing a hot iron over the veneer until all the bubbles and wrinkles are removed from the surface.

    I started using the low cost plastic scrapers made by Richards sold at the big box stores who shall remain nameless. I found I can spread an even glue layer across large surfaces quickly and the benifit is that the scaper can be cleaned off and used again and again. I tried using severl different paint brush techniques but always found the glue was difficult to spread. Any thoughts on my method good or bad?

    Is this method viable for larger panels, like 18"x40"? And, separately, would you suggest this method if using burl veneer?

    I'm sure there must be a maximum drying time before the ability to reconstitute the adhesion is lost. I'm thinking this technique would help me with my refacing kitchen cabinets project. What might be a maximum drying time?
