Veneer, type of glue?

First post!

I am going to apply a maple veneer to pine. The total surface area is about four square feet.

What kind of glue should I use? I am working in low humidity, hot, and I want a long working time.

There are a few details that may make a difference. It might depend on what the object is and it's shape. It might depend on your experience in veneering, and what tooling you may have, such as a vacuum bag.

It may also depend on what type of veneer you have access to...all wood, or paper backed. But, to answer your question in general, hammer veneering would be the easiest and provide the longest working time. You would be using hide glue, and it's easy to work with.

I have 315 gram strength hide glue, would that be right?

It seems from your link, a thicker mixture would be right. I've worked with hide glue alot, and I keep 315 gram strenth, and 125 gram strength.

The surface is flat, 1' by 4".
