Attaching veneer panel to cabinet side

What glue for this? Contact cement or just plain old wood glue?

This is not true veneer, but rather a thin panel that already has veneer on it

Got any photos? Is there a way to clamp the panel to the piece? If so then I would use wood glue.

yes, the premade cabinets at the Box Store come with a veneered
panel for the show ends. just regular wood glue and hold in place
with some tape and call it a day.

So I did a combonation of brads and clamps. The upper back section that will be covered by the next cabinet, I used brads. Anywhere exposed, I did not. Went with regular wood glue.

You'll be fine. Just make sure you don't over do it with the clamps and leave a dent....

just plain old wood glue is more than sufficient.

Looking at that picture is making me furious...construction adhesive is not a good method for fastening a finished panel and maybe I'm OCD but the least that guy could do is make the caulk more evenly distributed.

Contact cement or veneer glue(slightly different from regular wood glue) would have been the best options.

If youre upset that the glue that will never be seen has beeen applied wonky,,,, then yes, I can definitely call you OCD.

My kitchen has just had a makeover (couldnt afford new) and a new 3/8" melamine faced panel has been applied in exactly that fashion with "no more nails" type silicone from a tube.
I saw them fit it, it wasnt equally spaced lines, but theres no one in this world going to force that panel off just to inspect the adhesive.

I don’t want to sound like a wise guy (well, maybe a little bit :) but I use Titebond veneer glue for veneer and thin stuff. I don’t know exactly what differentiates it from regular wood glue, bit it seems to work great for veneer.

Sorry but we used liquid nail quite a bit during refacing. We sub contracted for a company in kansas City when I worked for Blystone cabinets in Buckner Mo....Refacing is usually a pre-finished material...a lot of people are living in these houses and don't want to smell contact adhesive. There's a law suit for ya...

What bothered me about the photo is that the adhesive does not go near the edges. I can easily imagine that panel absorbing moisture or heat or sunlight or grit getting in-between or whatever, and then curling away from the cabinet. Sure, those panels should be stable and not do that, but I wouldn't count on it.

P.S. I used contact cement to do that same task. The issue with contact cement is that there is no repositioning and no second chances.

Once those lines of adhesive get squeezed out they will be fairly close to the edge of the panel, then when he picks up the nailer it will soon be held in place.

Good points. I missed the nailer. I assume that it is used for clamping as well. With contact cement, we didn't use a nailer.
