To help the veneer conform to the curves in the molding, use a utility knife to score a horizontal line through the veneer about 1" away from one edge. Do not cut all the way through the veneer.
Apply a piece of veneer tape to the back of the veneer on the scored line, creating a hinge on the veneer.
Use a foam roller to apply water-based glue to the back of the veneer.
Apply the veneer to the molding, with the hinge on top of the curve in the molding. If necessary, use a small strip of wood to press the hinge into the curve.
Rub the top of the veneer with a damp sponge to press out any air bubbles.
Place the molding on top of a scrap piece of particleboard inside the VacuPress's polyurethane bag (Image 1). Close the bag.
Turn on the VacuPress. The machine will suck all of the air out of the bag and eventually suck the veneer into place on the molding (Image 2).
Turn off the machine, and allow the molding to sit inside the bag for 15 minutes.
