Use veneer tape. Water activates the glue and as you dry it with an iron, it shrinks slightly pulling the two pieces together.

You can also use easy release blue painters tape. Stretch it across ever couple of inches and then run a reinforcement piece down the entire joint. This will keep the pieces from sliding over top of one another.

You don’t need an iron to dry veneer tape. It dries on it’s own in minutes.

I tape the back side with blue tape to hold it together, then flip it over and apply veneer tape. Once the veneer tape is dry, remove the blue tape and glue the veneer down in the press.

You don’t need to iron it to dry it but it sure makes it faster. Thats just the way I was taught.
