I’m no great veneer hand but if you veneered the edges and both sides it would depend on the glue used to stick the veneer down. The only experience I’ve had with veneer is with Flexwood and I put that down with contact cement like I do laminate. If you finish with poly you should be fairly waterproof. I’d do one coat that was thined a little with mineral spirits and at least two coats more. I use MinWax Fast Dry. You can also wipe it if you thin it. The problem with doing the veneer over particle board is that you are stuck with a square edge. It is also possible to do solid wood edge bands around the particle board and then veneer very carefully and then route an edge treatment. But that’s another story.
