Van Dykes at: VanDykes.com can supply you with veneer. You will need to remove the old veneer with an iron, heat the veneer and slide a putty knife under the veneer as the glue loosens. Scrape offf any ecess glue then sand with 100 grit paper until the surface is smooth. You can put veneer on with contact cement put 2 coats on both the chair and the veneer let it dry. Put stickers of 1/2" dowel every 6" inches on the surface. Lay the veneer on the stickers and pull out the middle one pressing the veneer down firmly work out townard s the edge from both sides of the center removing stickers as needed. Be sure to get the veneer down tight with no air bubbles.
