I know from antiquing all the time you come across a lot of great wood pieces that have water damage or chipped veneer. Something to remember is that you always want to cut the veneer to overhang the piece of wood you are applying it to.
Remember you have to apply this to the back of the veneer and the surface you are applying it to. Here is a video from DIY to show how simple it is to veneer something and trust me it really isn’t difficult. Apply 3-in-wide painter's tape along one end of the veneer backing (this will prevent it from adhering to the paint can when you iron it in Step 3 of this section).
Make sure you have a piece of scrap wood handy -- you'll need it immediately following this step.
Firmly press the scrap wood against the overlapping section of veneer you just ironed; hold it there for about a minute while the glue cools. Apply wood conditioner to the tube with a foam brush -- this will prevent blotchiness when you stain it. It has a razor that when slid on the edge of the piece you are veneering cuts off the excess. This will help to push out any air bubbles that get trapped during application of the veneer. Usually the more exotic wood veneers have to be special ordered through a specialty wood dealer. I prefer this tool as opposed to using a flat piece of wood because the wood could mar the surface.
Errors will be corrected where discovered, and Lowe's reserves the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions including after an order has been submitted. I purchased a 4×8 sheet of Teak veneer (around $200, but I have a lot left over for other projects) from a dealer in Sacramento California to restore the surface of my Seeburg Jukebox pictured below.
