Mike: I use a veneer glue that is probably a PVA glue in my vacuum veneer press. I’ve not used veneer on the edge of anything because of my concern for lifting of veneer that seems to occur when clothing products hit corners and other thin places. I’ve not tried but I read where you can put pva glue on both the substrate and on the veneer and let it dry and then iron on the edge, like the prepared edging that you can buy. Like I’ve said I’ve not tried it so I can’t speak from experience on this. I tend to use solid wood for edging. about 1/4” thick and put a bead on it and then make it proud of the surfice you are placing it on.
