How do you do your veneer? Do you use plywood that is already laid up with the veneer, or do you apply it yourself? If you apply it, do you use spray on contact cement, or something else? I am far from a professional woodworker, but I like to dabble. I have seen some folks apply veneer with a more traditional wood glue, then put the whole part inside a vacuum shrink bag to apply the pressure. Always wanted to try that method as my Super 77 spray and stick approach does not yield very good results on larger pieces.

The name of the venner is Victorian Mahogany, and I use a contact cement, and apply with a brush, then roll it, and shape it.
