Pressure treated wood is normaly pretty wet from the process of treating it. I don’t believe it would be suitable for veneering. In addition, most pressure treated lumber that I have worked with tended to have some bowing and twisting over longer lengths. If your kinda new to woodworking I would suggest you use cedar or some other weather resistant wood such as cypress. I think it will save you a lot of frustration and can yield better results. I suggest you brouse the projects for outdoor furniture and you find some very attractive pieces made out of cedar.
