    I hope Jakob will not mind if I revive and hijack this thread with my own question

    I have a set of MDF enclosures that I coated with a water-based filler with the project of painting them.
    I changed my mind along the way and am now planning on veneering them, but I have been told wood glue would not work now that the wood is filled

    Any opinion or advice on the matter would be greatly appreciated!

    That's a tough one. The obvious answer is to use contact adhesive. Having used many different types of contact adhesives over the decades, I would suggest you not go that route.

    Can you use an aggressive sanding disc on a random orbital sander to try to remove most of the sealer? I bet you could use the wood glue/iron technique if you got 50% or more of the sealer off the wood.

    Yes I guess I could try sanding parts of it, thanks for the advice!
    I cannot remember how many coats I did and I am afraid the MDF might be saturated way deep, but it is worth a try!

    I heard veneer could come off after 8 or 10 years with contact adhesive, so I would like to avoid it if possible. Is that what you are referring to when suggesting to avoid these?
    Then again wood glue on a partially non porous surface might be even worse in this regard

    I will sand it and see if I can get something porous-ish enough to work with!
    Thanks Widget!

    Yes, I have tried commercial grade catalyzed contact cement, water based contact cement, and old school highly flammable solvent based contact cement. They all “worked”… but none worked perfectly over time.
