I would be really carefull if thinking of vennering over a red oak substrate. Oak has a very open grain and there is a pretty good chance it will telegraph through the veneer. Not Good! If you are useing a paper backed veneer or a veneer over a 64th of an inch than disregard this info and proceed as planned. A couple good hardwood substrates are soft maple and yellow poplar. I have used both in the past with excellant results. A good manufactured wood is MDF or Baltic Birch.
