In Response To: Removing Veneer (John)

Yellow glue or hide can both be removed with a hot iron. Set it on linen aond work in form an edge slide a 3-4" blad putty knife under the edge as it heats. With practice you can move the iron and knife at a speed that will let you lift the veneer in on continuous piece. Clean up glue residue with warm water or vinegar. If it is contact cement, which is unlikely, lacquer thinner will disolve it. Work in form and edge an squirt the thinner under while pull up on the veneer.
