Has anyone ever used Titebond cold press glue for wood veneer? Would appreciate any advice on using this stuff.

Titebond III and Cold Press are two different products – III is an exterior “waterproof” glue, and Cold Press is a veneer glue (maybe also for built up laminating? – not sure).

I use the Cold Press all the time and have no problems with it. I leave it in the Roarockit bag for 2 hours and it’s good to go. I have some panels out in the garage for an aquarium stand that I never finished. They’ve been out there for 18 months through St. Louis heat, humidity, below zero temps, etc. and look the same as they did when I put them in.

The only advice I would offer is to do a test first to get a feeling for how thin to spread it – a little goes a long way. I put it on the substrate and then use a 1” brush to spread it around. Also, don’t forget to put wax paper between the veneer and cauls/bag so you don’t have to worry about squeeze out sticking.

I have used Titebond cold press with good results. I use a foam brush for spreading it evenly. And like Steve said… don’t forget the wax paper on top, because some glue will bleed through the veneer.
