Default Hide Glue Veneer, give it a go!

Having made a mess of my iron-on veneer, (black paint contamination ) I decided, having been inspired by Col's and other excellent articles to give the hide glue veneer a go.
Collected together a slow cooker and large mayo jar for my gluepot, some pearl hide glue and American white oak , paper backed veneer.
Following a U tube tutorial I fashioned a very reasonable veneer hammer out of spruce, a broom handle off- cut and a piece of builder's multi drilled galvanised strip, which has a nice rounded edge and is heavily galvanised.
I mixed the glue too thinly the first time, but found it soon thickened up with some more pearls added, they seem to dissolve well even after a short soaking, evidently.
The unused glue, because I made far too much was sealed in the mayo jar, rapidly cooled and refrigerated, after 4 days it seems fine. Some photos below.
I have added one of the original state of the cabinet.

Superb! Once you get the knack it is a fine way to stick a veneer.

FWIW I learnt the method by using a DVD from David Savage https://www.finefurnituremaker.com/p...mer-veneering/ .

Thanks, Craig! there is certainly more flexibility, you can just peel the thing off and start again! I forgot to mention that I did "size" the freshly sanded wood.
