Hi. I have a couple of panels of veneer I'm planning to install on the side of some kitchen cabinets. I think that it would be much easier to stain & urethane-finish the veneer before installing them than to add the finish after gluing them on. The panels are above the kitchen sink and it would also interfere with general operations in the kitchen.
I haven't seen any reference to this order of operations on-line so I'm looking for feedback and suggestions about the risks and about the choice of glue to use. I was planning on using contact cement - Isn't contact cement used for Formica? I'm led to believe that contact cement needs to out-gas.
Thanks in advance,
