Jewellmartin on Dec 26, 2017Since a veneer is a thin strip or sheet of material like wood, you can buy the same or a similar sheet to glue in place of the old material, or even go with marble or glass or tile. ☺️Helpful Reply

James Gragg on Dec 28, 2017Never paint over wood veneer on an otherwise quality piece of furniture, especially an antique. If not, find some old veneer from another source, and peel apart the correct thickness you need, cut to shape and glue in place. The later wood fill stage will be easier to fill and sand. Takes a little longer this way, but you will love the finished results.Helpful Reply
