I was wondering what kind of glue people use for veneering. Recently I have tried Titebond Cold Press Glue for veneer. I have have decent results with this product. Any thoughts?

I use nothing but hide glue. Most often hot but on certain occasions I use liquid (Old Brown Glue). If you are interested in learning about the advantages of this centuries old stand by have a look at this blog.
I do a lot of veneering, much of it quite intricate and wouldn’t consider anything else.

I use Better Bond Veneering Glue from Veneersupplies (Highland Woodworking sells it locally here).

I haven’t had any issues with it at all. I also use it as a general purpose glue.

There is an article in this month’s Popular Woodworking (Oct. 2014 / #213) about this very subject. The article is about Unibond 800 urea formaldehyde glue used for veneering.
