Does anyone have any experience with Titebond’s Veneer Glue?
According to the write up it is ”Specifically formulated for cold press laminating of wood veneer to solid wood, plywood, MDF and particleboard, Titebond veneer glue is easier and safer to use than other contact glues and cements. Its open time of 15 minutes allows veneers to be positioned accurately before clamping and the formulation of the glue ensures that bleed-through is kept to a minimum even on open grained and unbacked veneers.”
Does it perform better than ordinary white glue? How does it compare with “old fashioned” hide glue?
Any comments will be appreciated.

i’ve never used their veneer glue but i’ve always used titebond III for all my veneers and it has always worked great. If they’ve improved the formulation for just veneers i’d definitely try it.

I have also used titebond III and it seemed to work ok, but then again this was my first time using veneer on a project. I saw on you tube someone using regular wood glue letting it dry then placing the veneer on the sub straight and and using an iron to reactivate it. Has anyone used that method?
